How to Plan for a Sharknado and Other Natural Disasters (Hawaii)

Hosted by AARP Hawaii

Wednesdays, July 21 - August 11

2:00-3:30 pm 

8/04:  Creating a Disaster Plan for Yourself, Your Loved Ones and Your Pets 

8/11:  Retrofitting Your Home to Survive a Hurricane 

Disasters are notable for their scale, unpredictability or both. A house fire, flash flood, hurricane or tsunami can leave devastation in its wake. The impact of such an event is often most severe for people who failed to plan for emergencies. You probably know people who have no plans for how to act when a disaster is imminent, or how to respond after one has struck.  Don’t be one of them. 

This series will walk you through understanding hurricanes, short and long term vulnerabilities, how to create your own disaster plan to help take care of yourself, your loved ones and your pets, and how to "harden your home," to help you survive a hurricane.
