Hurricane season has started and it is a good time to check your emergency plans. The Florida Department of Elder Affairs has published their annual "Disaster Preparedness Guide for Elders". This guide has information about:
  • planning for the hurricane season
  • manufactured homes and hurricanes
  • assembling a disaster supply kit
  • disaster preparedness for elders with hearing loss
  • disaster planning for your pets
  • heat stress and heat stroke
  • disaster recovery assistance
You can read the entire guide here.
