Tiffany Renz knew the right gift to husband Nick for their first wedding anniversary would have to do with being prepared.

So she surprised him Saturday, Oct. 12 with a class on disaster readiness being done by the Mile High Chapter of the American Red Cross.

“He loves being prepared. …On road trips, we go over different scenarios,” Tiffany said.

Still, Nick wasn’t prepared for the gift and was surprised when they walked into the Disaster Preparedness Class being held at Faith Ministries Church Intl. in Lakewood. The Denver couple learned about disaster kits and guidelines for dealing with emergencies from Red Cross volunteers Claudia Giannetti and Bill Davis.

“It’s good to be prepared. … and to be able to help people,” Nick said after the class. He is training for his emergency medical technician (EMT) test in November and is planning to become a firefighter.

Nick’s desire to be prepared included packing some unusual items for their trip to Cancun a year ago. Tiffany found a multi-purpose tool and water purification tablets in their luggage to be checked – and they made it through customs with little trouble, she recalls.
