Be Red Cross Ready Presentations Available


Would your church or organization like to have a presentation at a meeting? The Red Cross is offering “Be Red Cross Ready” presentations to anyone interested at no charge. No matter what the disaster, the American Red Cross can help you prevent, prepare for, and respond in the most efficient way. Throughout Allegany, Cattaraugus, and Chautauqua Counties, local presenters can provide education free of charge to help the public become better prepared in case of a disaster. The ‘Be Red Cross Ready’ program includes presentations on how to prepare for a hurricane, winter storm, extreme heat, extreme cold, earthquakes, thunderstorms, tornadoes, and floods and how to prevent house fires. Each presentation takes less than a half hour and will provide the basic skills to survive one of these events until further help is available. If you are interested in scheduling a free preparedness class for your school, group or organization, please contact your local American Red Cross office in Jamestown at 716-664-5115, Olean at 716-372-5800, or in Wellsville at 585-593-1531.
