Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA)

Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA). PEMA helps people prepare for all kinds of emergencies. Representatives hosting the workshop are trained in preparedness and have helped others make easy to follow materials to help you Be Ready.

The Preparing Together – Are you Ready PA? workshop is a unique opportunity for older adults to start (or continue) to plan for what to do during different types of emergencies. The best time to prepare is before something happens. From knowing what to do if you lose electricity in your home to who will take care of your pet if you have to leave your home unexpectedly, this workshop will guide you through how to Be Ready and be safe.

This workshop walks participants through completing the Preparing Together workbook. There are opportunities to pause the presentation to allow a bit more time for participants to complete the pages or discuss their experiences. Participants will leave with a workbook that has a magnet on the back so they can keep it on a refrigerator or somewhere that is easy to get to.

Hosting the program is simple. PEMA will:

  • Ship the free workbooks and a flashlight for each participant directly to your Senior Center, free of charge.
  • Invite an emergency management representative to be with you during a workshop held at your Senior Center (in person or virtually).
  • Provide a flyer to help you promote the program that you can customize for your Senior Center if you choose.


To offer this program, complete the materials request form:

Depending on availability of an emergency management representative, this program could be provided within two weeks from when you complete the form.
