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, how to build an inexpensive and effective disaster kit and much more. We work with all types of community groups including:
