Are you as an individual, organization, community leader ready for whatever disasters may come your way – whether weather or man-made?
Ready.gov continues to expand its disaster-related resources, with good plain language explanations and easily navigable resources for a broad range of scenarios.
And the Red Cross offers Safe and Well, an easy-to-use way of posting/finding updates on the status of individuals and organizations in disaster-impacted areas.
With just a name and phone number, you can also post updates and/or seek info on organizations and loved-ones.
Sharing this info with your family, friends and staff could be very useful.
Unfortunately, it usually takes another disaster to remind ourselves that no one is immune.
As we pray for and offer what assistance we can to those most recently affected, we should also take stock of our own preparations, and evaluate possible next steps to bring our preparedness up to the next level.
Check out Ready.gov, Safe and Well, and our LeadingAge compilation of resources specifically for elder care and senior services providers and communities.
