Senators Ask HHS and Homeland Security to Report on Preparedness for 2018 Hurricane Season

Senators Bill Nelson (D-FL), Marco Rubio (R-FL), Susan Collins (R-ME), and Robert Casey (D-PA) sent a letter to the secretaries of the Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Homeland Security requesting a detailed report on each agency’s preparations for the 2018 hurricane season, particularly as they relate to older adults and individuals with disabilities. The letter cites recommendations from the Senate’s Special Committee on Aging, including the prioritization of nursing homes and assisted living facilities for power restoration, greater interagency data exchange, and a seat at the table for these populations when planning recovery and response efforts.
