Preparedness Round-Up: Preparedness Resources in Multiple Languages

by Cari Wheat, Community Preparedness & Resiliency Manager

Colorado has a significant population of residents for whom English is not their first language.

Please take a look at our long list of free downloadable disaster checklists for all kinds of hazards  Many are available in Arabic, Chinese, French, Haitian, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog and  Vietnamese.

FEMA & friends have some fantastic resources as well:

And we’re thrilled to announce that the American Red Cross now offers Spanish-language versions of six of its free mobile apps, which offer lifesaving information families need to prepare and respond to emergencies – big and small.
  • The First Aid, Hurricane, Tornado, Earthquake, Wildfire and Flood apps are available with a feature that enables users to easily toggle between English and Spanish language. 
  • All of these Spanish-language apps are available for both iPhones and Android devices in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. They can also be found at (English) or (Spanish).
