Just In Case: An Emergency Readiness Planning Guide for People who May Need Extra Assistance
We recommend that you make use of this booklet, provided by the State of Vermont. This is an excellent guide to planning ahead and staying safe during an emergency. For the most benefit, you should print it and fill out the worksheet sections so you’ll have everything handy during a crisis.
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes of the University of Vermont provide learning opportunities for people over 50 without tests, grades or papers in Springfield, Brattleboro, and six other sites in VT. For details, go to http://learn.uvm.edu/osher/
