National Preparedness Month

National Preparedness Month is an observance each September to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that could happen at any time.  

This year's national campaign will focus on preparing older adults for disasters, specifically older adults from communities disproportionally impacted by the all-hazard events.

Older adults can face greater risks of extreme weather events and emergencies, especially if they live alone, are low-income, have a disability, or live in rural areas.

Each week, resources will be posted to help older adults prepare for emergencies.
