We are always encouraging people to be Red Cross Ready for emergencies and disasters; in fact, we even have a Disaster Preparedness Calculator Facebook app for just that purpose!

In Saskatchewan we work closely with Stantec and recently helped them run a Build a Preparedness Kit contest with their staff. For five weeks they got emails about what should go in a kit and were encouraged to build an emergency kit of their own.

Last week, in Regina, Shandra Vedress was presented with her prize of a Canadian Red Cross wind up radio and flashlight for having the most well stocked and creative kit.

Find out how you can be prepared by checking out our Disaster Preparedness Calculator Facebook app or on our website.
