Community Preparedness Education

  • Community Disaster Education in Seattle

Do you and your group have a disaster preparedness plan for when the “big one” hits the Northwest? How will you help an older adult evacuate a building in the event of a fire? Do you know how to explain your disaster preparedness plan to children? As a leader in community preparedness, the American Red Cross can help you.

If you have a group of ten (10) or more people, the Red Cross will come to you and give a free preparedness presentation tailored specifically for your needs. Most presentations take about 60 minutes.

Topics include general preparedness, earthquake preparedness, pandemic flu, how to use 9-1-1, how to build an inexpensive and effective disaster kit and much more. We work with all types of community groups including:
