Supporting Older Adults: Ensuring Safety and Preparedness in Disasters
During our second week of National Preparedness Month, we’re making sure everyone remembers that older adults in our community may need extra support before, during, or after disasters.
As an older person living alone, make sure to include your neighbors’ contact information in your emergency plan.
If you have a neighbor that needs assistance, #TakeControl123 and ask if they need help with building an emergency kit, arranging evacuation transportation, or if you can aid them in any way when an emergency arises.
Together, we can ensure everyone’s safety and well-being in times of crisis.
