Hurricane season is back. AARP Virgin Islands encourages all residents who have disabilities or who are 60 or older and live alone to protect themselves in case of a disaster.
Older residents and people with disabilities may find it difficult to get onto a local beach. But after an advocacy campaign by AARP Virgin Islands, a new law provides ramps or walkways on at least five beaches—two each on St. Croix and St. Thomas, one on St. John —so people with mobility issues can get over the sand to the sea.
AARP in The Virgin Islands (AARP VI) and the Virgin Islands Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VI VOAD), the St. Croix Long Term Recovery Group, the St. Thomas Recovery Team, and the Love City Strong non-profit organizations all collaborated to donate 1,000 emergency preparedness kits to Virgin Islands seniors in need territory wide. This collaborative effort is the beginning of an ongoing project to help seniors prepare for a natural disaster.

We’re writing with an important message to let you know that we have canceled our external events until further notice. While convening events is a core part of our mission, we have changed our approach in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
