Please join FEMA Region 2 National Preparedness Division and Administration for Community Living (ACL) for a Ready Senior Workshop.
Many older adults depend on community service providers for necessities and psychosocial support. However, these crucial services may be disrupted during disaster, impacting seniors in your community. Please join FEMA Region 2 and the Administration for Community Living (ACL) for a virtual Ready Seniors Workshop in English and Spanish. This workshop prepares Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) and other organizations that provide critical support services to senior citizens. 

The Ready Seniors Workshop has two parts: a presentation and a tabletop exercise. The presentation will discuss continuity of operations, preparedness planning for seniors, disaster mental health issues and case studies from State Units and Area Agencies for Aging. The tabletop exercise will examine a tropical storm scenario to test your organization’s preparedness.

Who should attend? Emergency planners for nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior community centers, senior housing, adult day care centers, home meal delivery services, charitable organizations, and others who provide services to senior citizens.

FEMA works to ensure equitable access for all to any services and programs that are provided by the agency. If you need a reasonable accommodation, please make your request in an email to fema-r2-prepares@fema.dhs.gov. Last minute requests will be accepted, but may not be possible to fulfill.
