Weekly Preparedness Roundup - from Your American Red Cross

by Cari Roberts, Community Preparedness and Resiliency Manager

Short and sweet this week (read: Cari’s in between vacation days!)…

1) I can’t stress the value and importance of our life saving disaster apps and a NOAA weather radio with all the wild Spring weather we’re seeing. When driving through the Grand Junction area earlier this week, my Flood App alerted me to the potential flooding along the Colorado River, just based on our location driving past. And the Tornado App came in really handy last night as a warning before we saw touchdowns in a number of our neighboring counties.

2) Our friends at The CELL are hosting multiple Community Awareness Program training this summer that are open to the public.  For more information and to RSVP - please contact

3) Want a feel good story to round out your week? We’ve got you covered – check it out our story about hometown heroes in flood affected areas of Colorado.

That’s it for now – see you next week.
