Red Cross: Tornado Preparedness Programs for Adults and Children
Red Cross: Tornado Preparedness
Monday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m.
How will you know if a tornado is coming? What will you do if it strikes? Join us to learn what the Red Cross knows about being prepared. In this program you will learn where to find tornado alerts, the difference between an advisory (watch) and a warning, how to choose a safe place in your home, apartment, trailer or office, and how to survive and recover.
Registration is recommended to reserve your spot. To register, please email Sue deGuzman (email@example.com) or call the branch at 336-703-2940.
