For older adults living in their own homes or apartments, natural or man-made disasters can be frightening or even deadly. It is important then, to plan for any type of disaster that could jeopardize health or safety. Fear, anxiety, and losses that surround a disaster can be reduced for older adults who are prepared.
Join us for a one-hour webinar, Disasters Are More Than Headlines, to learn what you can do to reduce the impact of a disaster on yourself and your home.
The webinar discusses:
- preparing for a natural or man-made disaster
- reducing the impact
- developing plans to evacuate or shelter-in-place
- creating a disaster supply kit
- developing a communication plan
- protecting yourself against financial loss
- protecting your pets
- planning for a safe return after the disaster is over
What you do before a disaster makes a dramatic difference
in your ability to cope with and recover from the disaster.
Be prepared is more than a motto!
