Program Spotlight: Prepare the Town Initiative in Brentwood
In partnership with the Brentwood Public Library, the American Red Cross on Long Island hosted “Prepare Brentwood,” a day-long community event on March 25, 2023, featuring safety courses, family readiness training, service opportunities, refreshments, prizes, and more. “Prepare Brentwood” was free to the public and open to residents of all ages.
“At the American Red Cross, we know all too well the devastating impact that disasters like home fires and hurricanes, as well as other unexpected life events, can have on the communities we serve. That’s why community preparedness – which can minimize the impact of these emergencies – is such a priority for us,” said Jose Dominguez, CEO, American Red Cross on Long Island.
