September is National Emergency Preparedness Month, and the Michigan State Police Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division (MSP/EMHSD) is using this opportunity to remind Michiganders that emergencies can happen anytime, anywhere and to anyone.


The MSP/EMHSD is uniting with agencies nationwide under the theme “Take Control in 1, 2, 3” to prepare older adults for disasters, specifically older adults from communities that are disproportionately impacted by the all-hazard events that continue to threaten the nation.


Older adults can face greater risks when it comes to the multitude of extreme weather events and emergencies we now face, especially if they are living alone, are low-income, have a disability or live in rural areas.
