Every year our country experiences deadly disasters. Florida and California residents are currently struggling with large scale destruction and loss of life. Our own state dealt with dangerous wildfires all summer long that caused thousands of evacuations near our own community.
It is not uncommon for aging adults to be hard-hit by disasters. Sadly, this can mean fatalities, severe injuries and even being left behind. What can we do to protect ourselves?
