Emergencies caused by severe weather or disasters can happen with or without warning. If you need dialysis, having power and water, transportation, or supplies will be crucial. Some emergency situations may make it impossible for you to get to your dialysis facility or give yourself dialysis. It is important to be prepared to feel better and stay healthy.
