A Community Resilience Publication

That has profound implications for emergency management, especially as natural disasters and extreme weather events become more common and severe. Created in collaboration with FEMA, this 44-page, photo- and strategy-filled AARP publication is a guide for how local leaders can reduce the risks and better protect older adults.
