Create an emergency plan as hurricane season starts
Whether you are prepared or unprepared for a disaster, the beginning of hurricane season is a reminder for all of us to have a disaster plan and disaster kit or to refresh and restock your disaster plans and kits.
That’s why AARP Hawai‘i is holding a free webinar on how to “Prepare Your Home for Hurricane Season,” on June1 at 10 a.m.
It’s especially important that kupuna and caregivers who take care of older adults be prepared before a storm or other disaster strikes. To register and get a Zoom link to the webinar, go to the AARP Hawai‘i website or the AARP Hawai‘i Facebook page and search for and click on the Upcoming Events tab. The tab lists all the events AARP is offering and links for registration.
Dennis Hwang, lead author of the Homeowner’s Handbook to Prepare for Natural Hazards, will lead the webinar, which is aimed at teaching participants what they can do today, ahead of a major storm, to prepare themselves, their families, and their homes for survival of a hurricane or other natural disaster.
People who do not have a disaster plan or emergency supplies will learn what to do and those who have a plan and supplies will learn if their plan and supplies are up to date.
