While the American Red Cross and our partners are committed to lending a helping hand to those in need, assistance may be delayed in times of disaster. That's why it's important for your family to Be Red Cross Ready. This is a program designed to help families to be prepared. If you attend one of our community presentations, American Red Cross personnel will be on-site to review the program with you. If you would like the American Red Cross to present this program to your group call their Community Services team at 607.785.7207.
