 The Apartment: Safety

Having a Disability

If you have a disability, there are some resources that are specifically for you wherever you may live. You can post a placard (metal framed device) outside a window of your home to let the fire department know you have a disability and need assistance in case of a fire. It’s also important to let the fire department know that you live in the community.

If you decide to live alone, you may want to consider a medical alert plan. This can include an identification bracelet that you wear which lists any health concerns an emergency response team would need to know about.

There are also specialized courses that you can take on safety and self-defense that are specific to your needs, whether you have a physical or other disability. It’s important for us all to feel safe and be able to enjoy our lives in our communities!
