Red Cross Event Highlights Disaster Preparedness

Our Mackenzie-Scott Branch hosted a free disaster preparedness workshop led by the Pasadena/Arcadia/San Gabriel-Pomona Valley Red Cross.  Some 40 of our families teamed up with Red Cross volunteers to learn how to prepare themselves for emergencies including house fires, earthquakes, flooding and tsunamis. Each family was given a starter emergency kit for home use and also had the opportunity to create their own emergency kits. Our thanks to the American Red Cross for making this important class available to us!
