Emergency Preparedness Education Toolkit for Children on Vents

Indiana EMSC has partnered with MESH Coalition and the Indiana State Department of Health to develop the Emergency Preparedness Education Toolkit for children that are supported by ventilators.  This kit includes an informational DVD, sample letters to send to EMS agencies and power companies, emergency preparedness checklists for their home, car, & ventilator, and tear off cards that include emergency contact information and ventilator settings.
