Many may be wondering what to do in the case of severe cold weather. The Red Cross shares some tips on cold weather preparation and their plans in the event of an emergency.
“The Red Cross is in communication with local Emergency Management about any needs for shelters due to the weather conditions. At this time, we’re not aware of specific needs; however, that could change. If local Emergency Management indicates to us that needs are there, we will work in conjunction with them to open shelters. Red Cross disaster teams stand ready to respond if we receive requests,” Amy T. Whittaker, regional director of public affairs for the Red Cross.
