No Person Left Behind
One of our very important project is "No Person Left Behind"
Press Release for DBS Feb 17, 2006
Each year Floridians with disabilities must be prepared for what Mother Nature brings forth to us in the way of Hurricanes and other disaster.
This year we are encouraging all seniors and persons with disabilities to voluntary register with “No Person Left Behind”.
“No Person Left Behind” is a program with 4 main goals:
· 100% accountability of all seniors and persons with disabilities
· Identify basic needs for these individuals
· Educate seniors and persons with disabilities and families on disaster preparedness
· Empower seniors and persons with disabilities to take control of their disaster planning
We want to be able to provide each person with disabilities the education material and tools, so that they can become better informed and educated as to what to do in a hurricane or during a disaster and then after they have learned what to do, then empower them to take control of there disaster plan and follow through with it.
By voluntary registering your now able to help yourself and others plan, and to create plans for the safety for all disabled Floridians. It also lets us know where you’re at in case you decide to shelter at home. Also if you decide to evacuate you can let us know so that we know that you and your family are accounted for and safe. After a storm when checking in with us and you need assistance we can direct you to the correct recourse for your needs.
This is not a special needs shelter registry.
