The Central Coast Commission for Senior Citizens is releasing a new Emergency Survival Guide for Older Adults. The guide provides information about things seniors can do to stay safe before, during and after major emergencies like fires, earthquakes and tsunami’s. As with all of the services provided by the Central Coast Commission for senior citizens, the information is free.
The Guide has updated information including registering for Reverse 911 Alerts. “Many emergency agencies are turning to the Internet and smart phone apps to get information out in the event of a major emergency. While more seniors are able to get information through Twitter and Facebook, close to 100% can benefit from Reverse 911.” said Jim Talbott, President, Board of Directors.
The Guide includes information on emergency radio stations, creating a survival kit and setting up evacuation plans. “Seniors are vulnerable in times of disaster.” declared Talbott. “We want to give them practical information to help them stay safe in an emergency.”
