Letter from Mid-West Tennessee Executive Director, Debra Roberson - September 2015
BUILD A KIT
It should contain a three-day supply of water (one gallon, per person, per day), nonperishable food, a flashlight, battery-powered or hand-crank radio, extra batteries, a first aid kit, a 7-day supply of medications, a multi-purpose tool, sanitation and personal hygiene items and copies of important personal documents. The Red Cross also recommends having at least two weeks of emergency supplies at home.
MAKE A PLAN
Everyone in the household should help put the emergency plan together and know what they should do if something occurs. Household members may not be together when a disaster happens.
Listen to a NOAA Weather Radio or local media outlets for critical information about the storm and download the Red Cross Emergency App. Users can find it in smartphone app stores by searching for the American Red Cross or going to redcross.org/apps.
Stay safe, you are important to us. Thank you for being a Red Cross Volunteer.
Debra Roberson, Executive Director
