Emergency preparedness

Emergency situations happen. To stay safe during severe weather, natural disaster or other emergency it is important to be prepared. 

State, local and federal governments are required to present emergency information in multiple formats that everyone can access, regardless of their communication needs. This includes accessible alert formats, broadcasts with ASL interpretation, captioning, posting accessible transcripts for online access, text messaging, email alerts and other options. Home emergency alerting devices are also helpful. 

See all of FEMA's videos in American Sign Language available on YouTube.
