WHAT: Would you know how to turn off your gas or electricity in an emergency? Would you know what to do if you couldn't return to your home after a fire or flood? How would you reconnect with your family if cell phones weren't working? Do you have an emergency supply kit?
All Central Valley residents need to be safe and prepared for emergencies large and small. We can't always anticipate when we will face an emergency, but we can take steps to be ready.
During the Fresno State Bulldogs’ last home game against New Mexico, the American Red Cross Central Valley Chapter will announce their continued emergency preparedness partnership with Pacific Gas & Electric Company, and ask Bulldog fans to “Make A Family Game Plan” and prepare for disasters.
WHO: American Red Cross Central Valley Chief Executive Officer Ellen Knapp
Former Fresno State Bulldog and PG&E employee, Mike Savage
WHEN: Saturday, November 23, 2013 at approximately 4:00pm. Activities to take place during the halftime ceremony.
WHERE: Bulldog Stadium at Jim Sweeney Field, Fresno, CA
