General Information
Description of ServiceGeneral preparedness initiatives are designed to build knowledge about disaster preparedness in age-specific populations. The preparedness model is built on three actions: Build a Kit, Make a Plan, and Be Informed. Through group presentations we discuss the measures to take for a variety of hazards that can occur in our region and encourage participants to think through and act upon gaps in their preparedness activities.
· Be Red Cross Ready – This flagship program introduces the services and values of the Red Cross while engaging participants in the discussion of preparing their households to take action when disasters occur. Local resources, smart device apps, and family evacuation plans are among the topics covered through the presentation. The program can also focus on specific hazards, such as fires, floods, and winter storms, or be designed to address the specific needs of targeted audiences.
· For Seniors By Seniors – This program is designed to specifically address the concerns of our senior population. The presentation focuses on keeping critical information current, developing and maintaining support systems, and demonstrating stress management practices. Participants learn how to shelter-in-place or prepare to leave quickly if needed.
