Preparedness

Are you prepared for an emergency situation? What if you have to leave your home after a fire or flood? What if you are evacuated after a sudden earthquake? After a disaster, how will you let family, friends and people in your life know you are safe? Do you have important items and emergency supplies gathered together in an emergency preparedness kit?

Every person in Southern Oregon needs to take simple steps to ensure they are personally prepared for emergencies large and small, and the Red Cross is here to help.
