Don't Get Caught Unprepared for Natural Disasters in Tennessee

Monochrome Spaghetti Lightning

Natural disasters can devastate communities and lives, as Tennesseans were reminded during December’s tornadoes. 

Severe weather is common in the spring, when heavy rains, hail and high winds can cause death and heavy damage.

AARP Tennessee is helping prepare residents for a variety of natural disasters. One way the organization is doing so is through a tele-town hall with an expert from the Red Cross, who will explain to listeners what to do in case of another crisis.

The event will be March 16 at 10 a.m. CT; find details at aarp.org/tn or watch a recording on the state AARP Facebook page

AARP reminds older Americans to have a disaster preparedness kit with items such as several days’ worth of medications, documents in a waterproof bag, an identification band and information about medical devices.

A complete guide to preparing for a natural disaster can be found at createthegood.aarp.org
