Eclipse 2.png

It’s Important to be Prepared

The path of totality will cross the state in a 124 mile range from southwest to northeast, passing
through some of our cities like Osgood, Sidney, Wapakoneta, Lima, Findlay and Kenton. During
the eclipse, the moon will completely block out the sun, casting a shadow on the Earth.

 

  • Area Agency on Aging 3’s office will be closed to the public Friday, April 5th - Tuesday, April 9th and reopen at 8 am on Wednesday, April 10th. Staff will be working remotely and you can still contact the agency but be prepared for poor internet /cell service.

    • Schedule important activities before Friday, April 5th or after Tuesday, April 9th

    • Know when it's appropriate to call 911, if not a true emergency use local non-emergency numbers for law enforcement

 

  • Ensure you have adequate supplies of the following by April 4th,                                                                                                                    or sooner to avoid crowds, shortages, etc.

    •  Prescriptions

    • Gasoline

    • Food and Hygiene Items (Incontinence Supplies)

    • Oxygen

  • Establish a back up plan for any routine services such as:

    • Personal Care (i.e who will assist in your care if your aide is unable to meet                                                                                    service during this period)

    • Homemaking

    • Home Delivered Meals (i.e. if services are unavailable, how do you plan to                                                                                      meet your nutrition needs)

 

  • The Ohio Emergency Management Agency is warning Ohio residents to be                                                                                        prepared as they believe some of our service areas will be flooded with visitors.                                                                                          This may include:

    • Increased traffic and possible traffic jams

    • Low supplies at stores and gas stations

    • Limited cell phone service and network use

    • Travelers stopped on roadways

 

It's never safe to look at a solar eclipse without proper equipment or techniques. Please use
approved solar glasses to avoid possible injury to one's eyes and vision.

What you can see during a total solar eclipse depends on the weather and the location from which you view it.

Weather: You need clear skies to have the full eclipse experience, with a clear view of the Sun and Moon. However, the eerie daytime darkness associated with eclipses is still noticeable with cloud cover.

Below is information for viewing the eclipse safely from the Ohio Department of Health and where is get glasses to watch the eclipse through!
