[ARCHIVED] Disasters are Stressful, Especially for Anyone with Special Medical Needs


If a hurricane or flood would hit James City County tomorrow, are you ready? Do you have an emergency plan?

While preparing for an emergency is important for everyone, those with special or functional needs due to health and mobility challenges are at greater risk. The time to plan is now.

James City County wants to help anyone with special or functional needs develop that plan so they will be prepared to survive for an extended period of time with the possible loss of electricity, water, communication, food and medical resources. Barb Watson, James City County’s Assistant Director of Social Services, joins us on the podcast this week to talk about the Special and Functional Needs List for Emergencies. Check it out and let us know what you think!

This Week in James City County covers upcoming meetings and events, highlights services, staff and departments and does a deeper dive on challenging issues. The podcast has featured 94 episodes since its launch in April 2017 and has been downloaded over 10,000 times.
