As Tropical Storm Isaac approaches Florida, with Hurricane warnings in effect for much of Florida’s West coast, government authorities are urging all citizens to prepare, and are focusing attention on government resources available to help you prepare for a hurricane.
If you are a family caregiver, and your senior loved one lives in a coastal area, have you taken the advisable steps to prepare in advance for a Hurricane? If an evacuation order were given, have you planned how and where your elderly parent would evacuate?
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) provides “Key Facts About Hurricane Readiness,” including helpful tips and checklists.
The National Weather Service’s National Hurricane Center also offers helpful tips for Hurricane Preparedness, along with current weather forecasts at www.nhc.noaa.gov.
