Commission on Aging to discuss how to create an emergency preparedness plan

Published Date
Group will recognize outgoing members at May meeting

The Clark County Commission on Aging continues the “Prepare in a Year” discussion series. This month’s topic is all about creating an emergency preparedness plan. Experts from CRESA, Clark County’s regional emergency services agency, will discuss the topic and answer questions from the audience. 

The meeting will be 4:30 pm Wednesday, May 15.

A disaster can happen anytime, anywhere. Sometimes we have warning, such as with winter weather, other times, it may come from nowhere, like an earthquake or wildfire. Having a plan and being prepared for all types of emergency situations can help reduce fear and anxiety and minimize potential loss. Join us on May 15 to learn how creating a plan will help you before, during, and after a disaster.

At the meeting the commission will also recognize outgoing commission members.

The preparedness series continues on June 12 with a session on how to store water and supplies. (Note: this meeting was rescheduled to June 12 due to a holiday.)

Commission on Aging meetings are currently held in a hybrid format with both in-person and virtual participation options. Attend in the sixth-floor Training Room of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St., or join by phone or computer through information provided at:
