  • Where can I get medical supplies?
  • How I do get accessible transportation?
  • Does the facility have disability ramp access?

Bring with you:

  • Written contact list
  • Medical alert tags/bracelets
  • Copies of medical insurance and Medicare cards
  • List of all medications, dosages, and allergies
  • Style & serial number of medical devices
  • Supply of prescription medications
  • Supply of medical equipment
  • Extra battery for a power wheelchair
  • Any cushions or padding
  • Wheelchairs, canes, braces, etc.

Storm damage makes life more difficult for service animals too.

For people who have service animals in Hallandale:

Pack extra food,  water, & other supplies for the service animal

  • Tell emergency responders that your service animal travels with you
  • Shelters and other buildings may not refuse entry to a service animal
