Emergency Preparedness
From the pandemic to floods, extreme weather events to increasing occurrence of wildfires--disasters and emergencies are challenging for everyone, but for older adults the impact can be greater.

Disasters of all kinds affect older adults disproportionately, especially those with chronic diseases, disabilities or conditions that require extra assistance to leave an unsafe area and recover from an event.
