The Mar Vista Community Council Aging in Place Speaker Series presents Gerontologist Susi Rodriguez Shapiro, who will conduct a workshop on Emergency Preparedness for Older Adults. There are many specifics to consider for Older Adults beyond what we already know about basic emergency preparedness. She will walk us through the completion of the File of Life and how to create a Go Kit. Remember that when it comes to Emergency Preparedness . . . "You CAN'T Predict them . . . You CAN'T Prevent them . . . You Can ONLY PREPARE for them!!!"
