Please join the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region 2 National Preparedness Division — in collaboration with ACL; the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Office of Policy, Planning, and Innovation; and Schoharie County, NY, Area Agency on Aging — for the “Preparedness for Older Adult Service Providers” webinar.

Many older adults depend on community service providers for necessities and psychosocial support. However, these crucial services may be disrupted during disasters, impacting older adults in your community. This workshop prepares organizations that provide critical support services to older adults. The webinar will discuss continuity of operations, preparedness planning for older adults, disaster mental health issues, and case studies. 

The whole community; workplace management; family members and other caregivers; federal, state, and local agencies; and community and faith-based organizations are invited to attend.

The webinar will include ASL and live captioning. Please send all questions and reasonable accommodation requests to fema-r2-prepares@fema.dhs.gov.
