Prepared for the next evacuation? Have you considered the needs of everyone in your community? Whether your 'community' is a single floor, an entire building, a city, a county, or your whole state...20% of the population have disabilities, 12.8% are elderly, 20.2% are children under 14. That's more than 50% of your community who'll need help evacuating. Still think you're prepared?
