Springpoint Senior Living - Disaster Resilience Initiative

Initiative Overview

The purpose of this important initiative is to work with the management and staff of Springpoint Senior Living communities throughout New Jersey to strengthen the ability of each community and its residents to prepare for, respond to and recover from various disasters and emergencies.

An important component of this initiative will be to provide meaningful and engaging resources to assist each community to enhance its DISASTER READINESS capabilities.
