Emergency Preparedness for Extreme Weather

March 18, 2024

The Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) shares information to help ensure Ohioan prepare and stay safe in extreme weather. For older adults impacted by the recent storms and tornadoes, the ODA works with its network of Area Agencies on Aging to help address any interruption of services toward identifying short-term solutions. According to an ODA press release, its Office of the State Long-Term Care Ombudsman also monitors storm impacts to long-term care facilities and remains on standby to assist residents as necessary.

Prepare for extreme weather for your home, yourself, and the homes of elder family members, neighbors, and caregivers for potential emergencies using this information from the ODA:
