Brookdale’s EP Central offers Adult Care Providers Tools for Emergency Preparedness

The Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging, located within Hunter College/CUNY, has updated its website to make it easier for visitors to find resources, including emergency preparedness tools specifically for adult care providers.    Called EP Central, this web portal offers training materials and access to recorded webinars on topics ranging from counter-terrorism awareness for ACFs to lessons learned by adult care providers from Hurricane Irene.  

While some EP Central resources are NYC-specific, there are many that ACFs from all regions of New York State will find useful in preparing for and recovering from various types of disasters.  For example, check out the Adult Care Emergency Preparedness Exercise Toolkit that can be downloaded here.
