Special Needs Sheltering
SPECIAL NEEDS - Caring for Out Most Vulnerable Citizens
Residents of all ages with special needs, those without transportation, and the elderly require extra attention and preparation in order to stay protected in weather emergencies.
Though Pinellas County government has education programs in place to help these citizens prepare and find safe shelter, the responsibility for storm preparation rests with individuals and their families or caregivers. That planning needs to happen early. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE STORM IS RAGING. Emergency personnel may not be able to respond when high winds make road travel hazardous. Plan for safe shelter now.
