Read this from Reggie Meeks:
A chilling reminder of the horror of it all came into my office. That we must use this tragedy to now demand better access to emergency information for our visually impaired and our deaf and hard of hearing citizens was driven home just yesterday. Reps from the Blind Veterans Association, Independence Place (in Lexington) and others met with me and revealed they have lost members in Eastern Kentucky to the tornado. Citizens who could not see, or who could not hear died in the tornado and it is haunting to now speculate whether they ever saw or heard reports of their pending doom I pray the Governor, the appropriate Cabinet Secretaries and others with access to means of communicating with these differently abled populations will come together and do what is necessary to ensure blind and deaf citizens have access to emergency information. Information, thanks to the media, we take for granted.
Frankfort needs to act on this.
