Preparedness Education

When we aren’t responding to disasters, we are helping people get ready for them. During disasters, vital resources will likely be unavailable, so preparing ahead of time allows you to minimize the effects of disasters and speed up the recovery process. The Red Cross Los Angeles Region has developed a variety of materials to educate the public about how to stay safe and prepare.
