ARE YOU PREPARED? 

Communities Assisting Residential Elders (CARE) is collecting information on emergency preparedness for older adults.  How prepared are you in case of a fire, gas leak or an area wide evacuation?  What if you were required to shelter in place for an extended period of time?  Do you have a plan for both you and your pets?  This particular survey is for anyone 60+ living in a single family home in the 9 cities that we serve.  Call 216-970-0599 for assistance.
