Help in Your Own Back Yard: Choosing and Using Services in Your Community

Become more knowledgeable about the services and resources available in the local community--especially as it relates to hurricane preparedness for people who are aging and their caregivers.

SPEAKERS: Kelley Currie, Access and Functional Needs Coordinator–Brunswick County Emergency Services and Audrey Hart, Access and Functional Needs Coordinator–New Hanover County Emergency Services

With hurricane season nearing, our presenters will cover hurricane preparedness, with a focus on how to help parents who may have medical, access, or functional needs that would place them at higher risk during an emergency situation.

Participants will also learn about the AFN Program and how it helps those who may have special medical needs that would make evacuation more difficult, the loss of electricity more dangerous, or cause other challenges in an emergency.
