With National Preparedness Month rapidly approaching, we all need to assure that we are staying disaster-ready not only in our homes, but also in our workplaces.
For many businesses and organizations, figuring out how to prepare for an emergency can feel both confusing and time-consuming. However, with the help of the Red Cross Ready Rating program, you can learn the best tips and practices that can easily prepare your business for any emergency.
The Ready Rating Program is a free membership program designed to help businesses, organizations and schools become better prepared for emergencies. The program includes a 123 Assessment that measures your organization’s level of preparedness, customized emergency plans for your organization, a resource center for preparedness information and a shop where you can purchase preparedness supplies.
Companies that participate will receive a Ready Rating Seal that serves as a visible statement that you as an organization are committed to improving your level of preparedness for your employees and company as a whole.

You can never be too prepared when disaster strikes!
