HHS Offers Online Trainings on Community Emergency Preparedness for Older Adults and People with Disabilities

October 23, 2020
Source: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) has a new online training on older adults and disasters that is designed to improve public health and emergency medical responders’ capability to address the access and functional needs of community-dwelling older adults in disasters.

This new training complements ASPR’s previously-released Access and Functional Needs (AFN) web-based training, defines the concept and requirements for addressing the AFN of at-risk individuals, and provides tools and resources to help you address the AFN of at-risk individuals in your community during disaster preparedness, response, and recovery activities.

The trainings are at-your-own-pace and free, although participants will need to create an account in the TRAIN system to access training.
