    "This guide is intended to help close many of the gaps in emergency planning and preparedness for vulnerable older adults. In particular, it aims to give public health officials, the Aging Services Network, emergency management personnel, and essential partners from other sectors and at all jurisdictional levels (community, regional, tribal, and state) the critical information, strategies, and resources they need to improve the planning for and protection of vulnerable, community-dwelling older adults during all types of emergencies (often referred to as all-hazards emergencies)." - p. v
