We may not get hurricanes, but we need to be prepared for winter and other bad weather. 1. Prepare yourself and help others be ready: 1. Make a first aid kit for your family and learn about emergency preparedness. “Pay it forward” by making another kit for a neighbor or friend. 2. Attend a presentation by two local Red Cross Representatives who helped with Hurricane Sandy relief. They will also present important information on winter preparedness and how the Red Cross serves our community.
