Why Prepare?

2008-hwaw-winner Experience tells us by preparing ahead of time, people can better respond to, recover from, and lessen physical, emotional and financial impact of a disaster or other emergency. Taking a few minutes to prepare now will save you time in disaster and emergency situations, especially when every second counts!

Every region of our state is vulnerable to disasters of some type. Last year our Chapter responded to more that 212 disasters across the Big Bend Area including tropical storms, floodings, tornadoes, severe storms, and house fires.

It’s easy for anyone to prepare for a disaster and other emergencies by taking three simple actions: 1) Get a Kit. 2) Make a Plan. 3) Be informed.  

To help you prepare, the American Red Cross has online education and resources at For more information on how you and your family can become prepared visit our Chapter’s website or call 850-878-6080!
