The purpose of the Game Day Guide and Game Day event is to provide residents with information and a general understanding about preparing for emergencies. AARP and its partners are not responsible for any damages that may result from an emergency situation. Moreover, this guide is not a mandate and should be used only as a tool to prepare for emergencies. In no way is this guide meant to encourage a particular plan of action. Residents should abide by the recommendations and orders of local government officials and emergency professionals before, during, and after emergency situations.
