Preparing for the Summer Heat



On May 22, 2017, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) released an email with a reminder about taking precautions with the extreme summer heat that will soon be upon us. A few helpful resources ACL pointed to include ready.gov/heat and cdc.gov. In addition, they noted a link to information on preparing a basic disaster supplies kit. Finally, the email included the mention of the The HHS emPOWER Map 2.0 that features the monthly total of Medicare beneficiaries with electricity-dependent equipment claims at the U.S. state, territory, county, and zip code level to identify the areas and populations that may be impacted and at risk for prolonged power outages.
