Disaster Preparedness Guide for Elders


Dept of Elder Affairs

The Florida Department of Elder Affairs is pleased to share our annual Disaster Preparedness Guide for Elders. This guide is a special edition of our bi-monthly newspaper, Elder Update, and includes helpful information from local, state, and federal organizations to help elder Floridians and their families prepare for emergency events, respond to those events, and protect themselves from fraud following a disaster.

We hope you will share this with your stakeholders, constituents, and team members in your distributions, online, and/or on social media. I have included web-ready PDFs of the English and Spanish versions, as well as the jpegs for social postings. To link to our web posting of the guides, please see the links below:
