Created in partnership with the American Red Cross, AAA Northern California, Nevada, and Utah is the lead sponsor for a new innovative disaster preparedness training program, Ready, Set, Respond. The 90 minute training is designed to increase the number of citizens in our communities who know the disaster hazards that may impact their communities and understand fundamental personal preparedness skills. The training aims to engage participants with the volunteer intake process following a major local disaster and provide information on the humanitarian mission of the American Red Cross and how to get involved.
By providing this training to our communities, AAA branches will become a community catalyst for disaster readiness among AAA employees and its 4.2 million member-base, and other members of the communities we serve. The workshop starts with personal preparedness lessons and is then followed by interactive exercises that will prepare participants to respond during times of immediate need.
Through this unique partnership, the American Red Cross and AAA aim to multiply the number of citizens that are disaster-ready in the communities we service in Northern California, Nevada, and Utah through disaster education.
