Being prepared for emergencies is important on many levels. Individuals can take steps to prepare themselves and their families to cope with emergencies in the short term. This can be especially important for seniors who may have special health needs or who may find it difficult to get out in poor conditions. This presentation, based on the 72 Hours Campaign, provides tips for emergency preparation. Find out how to be prepared for bad weather, power outages, and other unexpected emergencies! This presentation will be of interest to seniors and their family members, service providers, and community workers.
Guest presenter: David McCormack, Director of Emergency Services, Fire and Emergency Services-Newfoundland and Labrador (FES-NL)
