Protecting the Vulnerable During Disasters
Disaster can impact any of us, at any time. Whether it's fire, flood, earthquake, manmade event or any other kind of disaster, safe evacuation is Job One.
If we learned anything from Hurricane Katrina, with its vivid images and heartbreaking stories of defenseless victims unable to evacuate, the elderly being floated out on mattresses, and young children separated from their families, it's that we must be better equipped to ensure the vulnerable among us can evacuate safely.
SAFELY OUT™ project, developed with technical assistance from the Red Cross Sacramento Sierra Chapter, is designed specifically to ensure our most vulnerable citizens, including the disabled, frail seniors, young children and more are protected during a disaster.
