As the leader in disaster and emergency preparedness, the American Red Cross is proud to announce the opening of its new Northeast Ohio Regional Readiness Center located in Mansfield, Ohio. The Readiness Center functions as a storage and distribution facility for basic Red Cross response and relief materials, such as cots, blankets, vehicles, equipment and more. Because of its central location and easy access to Ohio’s interstate transportation network, the facility allows the Red Cross to quickly and easily transport critical supplies to support large scale relief operations at any point in Northeast Ohio – and beyond.
Please join the Red Cross as we dedicate this important new investment in the safety, security and wellbeing of the residents of Northeast Ohio.
