Earthquake & Tornado Preparedness tips from the American Red Cross

Posting this from an email I received from the American Red Cross

Last week, a series of devastating tornadoes ripped through parts of the Midwest and South, causing multiple fatalities and leaving many without power, food and water. And on Monday, two earthquakes rattled the San Francisco bay area, forcing a brief disruption of public transportation.

Events like these remind us that disasters can strike with little warning and disrupt whole communities, affecting the businesses, schools, employees, customers and community members we depend on.

Help your community stay safe – and your organization strong – by sharing these Earthquake Preparedness and Tornado Preparedness tips with your employees and their families and friends.

As a Ready Rating member, we know you understand the importance of preparedness. That is why were asking you to help spread the word. Tell your corporate ‘neighbors’ to visit and take the 123 Assessment.

From individuals to organizations, it takes the whole community to be prepared.
