What would you do if you couldn’t return to your home after a fire or a flood? How would you reconnect with your family if you became separated following a disaster? Do you have the correct items in your disaster preparedness kit? These are questions that you need to be able to answer.
The American Red Cross Greater Phoenix Chapter is working to ensure that people throughout Arizona are ready to handle disasters by training individuals in lifesaving skills and by empowering local businesses and organizations to develop the necessary resources and networks. By fostering a culture of readiness through personal preparedness and collaboration among community groups, people become more resilient, and they’re able to recover quicker after disasters.
Disasters affect everyone, and, just like adults, children and youth need to know what to do if something happens. The Pillowcase Project, focused on third graders, not only teaches how to prepare for disasters, but also coping skills for emergencies. Participants receive a special "Preparedness Pillowcase" to take home when they are done. Classes are also available for older kids through our Masters of Disaster workshop.
