Several new resources are being implemented
in Kansas to help first responders and emergency personnel help
people with disabilities.

The Kansas Division of Emergency Management has developed what
it calls the Kansas Vulnerable Needs Planning System. The
Internet-based system is intended to improve coordination among all
responders.

On the website individuals, volunteers and facilities can register with the state. The registrations will create a database of people with special needs, their places of residence and volunteers willing to help help them.

Maj. Gen. Tod Bunting, state director of emergency management,
says it's important to make sure that people with special needs are
accounted for in disasters.
