About this Event
Everyone knows the Red Cross helps people during disasters and emergencies. You may not know that it’s also part of our mission to help you help yourself and your community before an emergency occurs! Becoming “Red Cross Ready” means following our 3 simple steps to ensure you are prepared for a disaster:
· Get a Kit
· Make a Plan
· Be Informed
We’ll teach you how to prepare yourself, your family, and your community during this 1-hour course. Being prepared may not prevent a disaster, but it will give you confidence to meet the challenge!
