Diabetes and Planning for Natural Disasters

Provider Medical Team

Are you ready for an emergency situation like a severe thunderstorm, snowstorm, or hurricane? You may not be able to get to food or supplies for several days. Do you know what to do or who to call?

Natural disasters usually happen when you least expect them. Be prepared so that you know what to do in an emergency. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) prepared a tip sheet to help you build a plan, gather supplies, and know who to contact if you experience a disaster.
