Involving the elderly in disaster preparedness training can be an important contribution to socially-inclusive procedures


Regarding active elderly people, a large number of practitioners felt that involving physically active senior citizens in disaster preparedness training would offer such senior citizens the opportunity to take up social responsibility and play (again) an important role in their community. Encouraging them, e.g. through senior citizens organisations, to get training and become volunteers, was considered as an important contribution to socially inclusive procedures.
