About Be Red Cross Ready -

Be Red Cross Ready is a national, standardized, free preparedness education curriculum designed to help people understand, prepare for, and respond appropriately to disasters. Be Red Cross Ready utilizes a whole community approach to preparedness education. Preparedness and safety information for older adults and individuals with disabilities, access, or functional needs is woven into the curriculum. The program aims to reduce perceived barriers to taking preparedness actions by focusing on a step-by-step approach that is manageable, action-oriented, and affordable.

What you will see in the presentation:

  • Preparedness as a practical real-world risk reducer
  • Self-reliance in preparing and responding to a hurricane
  • Get a Kit, Make a Plan, Be Informed
  • Tailor your kit and your plan to fit your world
  • Accommodations in a Covid-19 environment
  • Have a plan, share your plan, practice your plan, use your plan
  • Hurricanes – over all awareness and local history
  • Choices and authoritative guidance on sheltering and evacuation
  • Know the risks in your home and neighborhood
