      Are you and your caregiver/family prepared if a disaster strikes? Weather, fire, flood, power-outages and other emergency situations are even more of a challenge when living with ALS.

      This checklist from the MDA is a good resource: Preparing for Emergencies: A Checklist for People with Neuromuscular Disease.

      How have you prepared for these types of emergencies? Have you already experienced any and have advice for others?

      I’ve had to evacuate Florida twice for hurricanes. First one I drove myself to Orlando. Second one a friend and I drove to Atlanta. Just can say my SUV was full and that was without any ALS equipment.

      I moved to a concrete and steel condo so it’ll have to be a bad one for me to go again.

      I have paperwork that I’m supposed to submit to the fire department and power company.

      Wow – – two evacuations!  Those are good tips; especially providing information to the fire department and power company.
