The devastating winter storms our region just experienced, and this past summer’s wildfires, serve as a painful reminder that disasters can happen to anyone, anywhere, anytime – even during a pandemic.

So, in honor of March being Red Cross Month, the Red Cross Cascades Region is hosting a series of free emergency preparedness presentations throughout the month. All presentations are virtual, and everyone is welcome to attend.

Starting March 2nd and taking place every Tuesday in March from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM, classes will cover the most common disasters we face in the Pacific Northwest and how to prepare for them. Whether you’re motivated to start building your preparedness kit, or need a refresher course, these classes are designed to help families and individuals learn how to be better prepared. Information and links can be found at redcross.org/cascades.

  • March 2nd: Winter Storm Safety
  • March 9th: Wildfire Safety
  • March 16th: Earthquake Safety
  • March 23rd: Flooding Safety
  • March 30th: Home Fire Safety

We recognize that preparing for emergencies looks a little different right now, but the three basic action steps remain the same: Build a Kit, Make a Plan, and Be Informed. In addition to the preparedness series, the Red Cross Cascades Region has a free downloadable Prepare! Guide available in four languages, EnglishSpanishVietnamese and Russian. Red Cross B-roll is available here.

For nearly 80 years, U.S. presidents have proclaimed March as Red Cross Month to recognize people giving back through its lifesaving mission — which is powered by more than 90% volunteers.

They include people who volunteer to provide emotional support, psychological first aid, and referrals to community assistance for families coping with disasters during the pandemic.
