ADA & Access Matters

In This Edition

Emergency, Storm & Severe Weather Preparedness

Plan. Prepare. Respond.

The recent impact of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaias was a reminder of the importance of planning and preparing for potential emergencies, severe weather, natural disasters, and flooding during the COVID-19 pandemic.

**Keep in mind

You may need to adjust any emergency plan based on the latest from your state, local officials and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
