When it comes to major emergencies, whether wildfires, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes or other disasters - it may not be a matter of if but when you may need to leave your home quickly and under pressure. Will you be ready?
When a natural disaster hits, older Americans are especially at risk. The loss of air conditioning or heating, fresh water, sewage or other services, even the inability to obtain vital prescription medication poses potentially life threatening risks. And often, those over the age of 75 are the least prepared for a natural disaster.
On this month’s AARP Live, AARP Wisconsin state director, Sam Wilson, AARP Indiana state director June Lyle, and AARP Alabama volunteer Sherry Kolodziejczak offer tips and information to help you and your loved ones prepare for the worst and stay safe when disaster strikes.
