Preparing for disasters through corporate and community partnerships

Now, more than ever, we need to pull together and share our knowledge, resources, and expertise to prepare for any emergency. The American Red Cross of Orange County encourages all workplaces to invest in emergency preparedness. We are striving to bring together our corporate, public and private communities to work to achieve a level of preparedness that may ultimately save lives.

The DPRA is supported by members representing small and large businesses, community organizations, municipal agencies, non-profit organizations, universities and schools. The mission of the DPRA is to establish opportunities to network and share information on emergency planning, training and disaster recovery. It offers a unique opportunity to share information and knowledge. Like our annual Disaster Preparedness Academy, the DPRA offers members a chance to hear from experts of the highest quality.
