Be Red Cross Ready – Being prepared for emergencies such as fire, power outages, or severe weather events are crucial at home, work, in your vehicle and in your community. Emergencies can strike quickly and without warning. It can force you to evacuate your home, neighborhood, or workplace or can confine you. What would you do if basic services – water, gas, electricity of telephones – were cut off? The best way to make you and family safer is to be prepared before disaster strikes. The American Red Cross’s Be Red Cross Ready presentation teaches you how to be prepared!

How To Respond – No one wants to think about violence on campus. We have all probably heard stories though, of shootings from across the United States. An active shooter is one situation where your behavior and the actions you take can have a tremendous impact on whether you survive or not. The purpose of this program is to help students and staff recognize the warning signs and understand how to respond if a violent situation occurs. Studies have revealed that immediate action taken by individuals is the most effective way to prevent and stop the violence.
