This year's NPM theme is “Take Control in 1, 2, 3". This theme empowers everyone, especially older adults, to 1) assess their needs, 2) make a plan and 3) engage their support network to stay safe when disaster strikes.
Older adults can face greater risks when it comes to the multitude of extreme weather events and emergencies we now face, especially if they are living alone, have low-income, have a disability, or live in rural areas. Older adults and their caregivers can overcome these potential obstacles and increase their resilience by taking control in 1, 2, 3. For more information visit ready.gov.
