National Kidney Foundation

January 1, 2013

The delivery of healthcare services, such as dialysis treatment, can be disrupted by natural disasters (blizzards, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, etc.) as well as by other types of emergency situations, such as electrical power blackouts. The aim of this booklet is to help you prepare for possible emergencies. Hopefully, you will never need to use these emergency measures. However, by knowing what to do and preparing ahead, you can feel secure if an emergency should occur.
