Mission: SUPPORT Managing life threatening allergies is a difficult process. After a diagnosis of food allergies, many parents feel overwhelmed. LAN members are available to share experiences and provide practical advice. EDUCATE We educate our families and local community about living with life-threatening allergies. LAN provides resources through various platforms. In group meetings, guest speakers give presentations on food allergy related topics. Members participate in fund raising activities to support outreach and medical research. ADVOCATE We work with various food allergy organizations and Loudoun County Public Schools to promote awareness of life-threatening allergies. LAN is committed to increasing awareness and advocating for a safer environment.

Hurricanes: Weathering the Storm if You Have Asthma

With the threat of the oncoming hurricane, those with #asthma may need to take extra precautions.

https://community.aafa.org/blog/hurricanes-weathering-the-storm-if-you-have-asthma

community.aafa.org We are currently in the peak of hurricane season, which goes from June 1 to Nov. 31. While preparing for a possible storm, people with asthma need to take extra precautions to reduce chances of an asthma episode or attack.

From the #Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office:

“Three days out from #HurricaneFlorence and LCSO would like to remind residents that it's important to prepare, but also just as important to keep calm. Learn how you can reduce risks now and be prepared with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management HurricanePreparedness supply kit guide.”

Three days out from #HurricaneFlorence and LCSO would like to remind residents that it's important to prepare, but also just as important to keep calm. Learn how you can reduce risks now and be prepared with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management HurricanePreparedness supply kit guide.

#FoodAllergyAlert: Loudoun County Government has issued the following announcement, including the link via VA Dept. of Emergency Management:

“Loudoun residents: get ready now. Please review this information from our partners at the Virginia Department of Emergency Management.”

LAN would like to add for the families with #FoodAllergy, please be prepared with safe shelf-stable foods, water, epinephrine auto-injectors, and any other medications necessary. Connect with other families who have #FoodAllergies in #Loudoun via our LAN private forum. Keep a full charge on cell phones. Office Depot & similar retail stores have small, inexpensive portable chargers. If power is lost, devices can be charged in a few minutes using these portable chargers.

Stay safe. Stay dry. ❤️

National Hurricane Center: there is an increasing risk of life-threatening impacts from Florence, storm surge at the coast and freshwater flooding inland from prolonged & exceptionally heavy rainfall. ALL Virginians should take time to prepare their family, home and workplace.

For preparedness information and resources for floods and hurricanes please review: VAemergency.gov/floods and VAemergency.gov/hurricanes. Coastal Virginians should learn their evacuation zone and review the Hurricane Evacuation Guide at KnowYourZoneVA.org.
