Tips for Seniors

In the midst of hurricane season, the July edition of Aging on the Suncoast spotlights disaster preparedness for seniors.

This month’s program features two emergency management professionals as guests, Debbie Peck, emergency management coordinator with Pinellas County Emergency Management and Jason Martino, emergency coordinating officer for the Area Agency on Aging. Peck and Martino discuss areas of particular interest to seniors, such as making evacuation plans, registering for a special needs shelter, finding transportation to a shelter and how to obtain an emergency supply of medication.

Aging on the Suncoast is a half-hour monthly show featuring subjects of interest to those ages 60 and older. It is produced by Pinellas County Communications and the Area Agency on Aging of Pasco-Pinellas, Inc.
