Arapahoe Library District Hosts Free Preparedness Workshops

Emergency preparedness presentation
Bring your questions, let others know what you've done, and leave with plenty of great ideas and resources.

Do you have a plan for finding your family in case of emergencies? Are your emergency kits ready? Do you even know what or how much you need?

As part of the Arapahoe Library District’s Healthy Living/Preparedness series and in honor of Red Cross Month, six Arapahoe Library District locations will host free “Be Red Cross Ready” workshops to help local residents answer those questions and start on the path towards household preparedness.

During the hour-long interactive sessions, experts from the Red Cross will help you “plan your plan.” Bring your questions, let others know what you've done, and leave with plenty of great ideas and resources.

The workshops aim to help attendees take tangible steps that will help mitigate the effects of a disaster and help them bounce back more easily should a disaster strike their home or neighborhood. For more information or to register, call 303-542-LIBRARY (7279).
