ATLANTA -- The Fulton County Office of Aging and the Atlanta Fulton County Emergency Management Agency (AFCEMA) encourage seniors and their caregivers to be prepared for potential ice and snow.
Recommendations from Aging and AFCEMA include advising seniors to develop a network of neighbors, friends and relatives who can assist them in the event that local weather conditions include ice, snow and subfreezing temperatures.
Seniors should avoid extreme or inclement weather conditions. They should also keep handy a contact list of people and agencies that they can contact if they need emergency assistance.
Fulton County public facilities including Senior Multipurpose Facilities will be closed on Wednesday, February 12, 2014.
Senior citizens are advised to:
• Make prior arrangements with their physician or check with their oxygen supplier about emergency plans for those on respirators or other electric powered medical equipment.
