Quiz: What Do You Know About Preparing for a Natural Disaster?

Earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and wildfires are hitting in unexpected places

8 Questions

Technology has made it easier for people to prepare and respond during emergencies.

But its reliability depends on the steps a person takes before a disaster strikes. Severe weather — drought, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires and other extreme events — can put older adults in more danger than those younger because of a higher risk of chronic health conditions and less mobility. So having an emergency plan in place and knowing how to use your technology to help you stay informed is critical.
