FEMA, AARP Release New Resources to Help Local Communities Protect Older Adults from Disasters

Jul 14, 2022 | Beth Hess

FEMA and AARP have released new resources to help local officials and emergency managers protect older adults in their communities before, during, and after natural disasters and support communities in mitigating the effects of extreme weather events.

The “Guide to Expanding Mitigation: Making the Connection to Older Adults,” released by FEMA and AARP, highlights how natural hazards uniquely affect older adults and provides recommendations for how emergency managers, planners, local officials and community members can include older adults in community efforts to lower their risks.

The AARP Disaster Resilience Tool Kit features strategies to help local, state and community leaders and advocates reduce the risk and impacts of disasters on older adults.
