As a senior citizen, how can I be better prepared?
Make sure your plan identifies a support network of people who can help with specific needs such as evacuating your home, using any life saving equipment you may have and administering medicine in case of emergency. These people should have a key to your house. Keep a list of the medications and medical equipment you are using and copies of your medical cards and emergency contact information in a waterproof container to protect it from water damage.
