What is Preparedness on the Square? Glad you asked!

Preparedness on the Square is a downtown lunch time event held during March which is “Red Cross Month”. Located at the Reflecting Pool behind City Hall, it’s the perfect venue for attracting downtown workers with a mix of fun and life-saving information. Last year, more than 2000 people spent their lunch hour learning to Be Red Cross Ready, listening to music and playing games.
 
Red Cross Disaster Services staff and volunteers taught people how to create a Disaster Supplies Kit and an Emergency Plan. Health and Safety Services staff and volunteers demonstrated First Aid and CPR. Our Transportation Services department was on hand to inform the public about this unique program that is offered to the elderly and chronically ill. Our Military Services program staff talked about the assistance offered to military personnel and their families.
 
 
If you are available to volunteer please respond via email lwilliams@ghac.org or by phone 713.313.1625 as to which day and shift that you will be available to volunteer.  Thank you to those that have already replied from previous requests.
