Focus on the F-tag: New Resource Available:  Emergency Planning Toolkit

A new Capacity-Building Toolkit for Including Aging and Disability Networks  in Emergency Planning is now available called the Capacity-Building Toolkit. This resource guides aging and disability networks to increase their ability to plan for and respond to public health emergencies and disasters. This toolkit helps programs that support older adults and people with disabilities, through the emergency planning process of preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation activities.
 
The toolkit was written by the National Association of County & City Health Officials and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials, in partnership with the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response and the Administration for Community Living. It can help organizations of all types conduct more inclusive emergency planning by facilitating personal preparedness for aging adults and people with disabilities.
