    Emergency plans often overlook disabled

    Headline and Article from the AP Wire.
    http://www.newsday.com/news/nationwo...orld-headlines

    Hightlight:

    "Decisions about who the people are, where they are located and how they need to be evacuated should be made in advance, and there should not be a need for decisions to be made during a crisis."

    Report mention in article is -

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Our local transit service is an often overlooked asset for this type of plan. Granted it's only a few buses but where else can you get vehicles with wheelchair lifts?
