Red Cross, CDC Ready Country for Emergency Threats
Date:6/16/2009

Last Thursday, the World Health Organization raised its pandemic alert level to phase 6, indicating the widespread nature of the H1N1 flu in advance of the traditional flu season.

American Red Cross and CDC officials call upon communities to take basic preparedness steps, which can have as much impact as national and regional planning.

On Tuesday, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies will release the 2009 World Disasters Report, which emphasizes the importance of community preparation and early disaster warning in order to minimize damage. The American Red Cross offers information at www.redcross.org on assembling a supply kit, creating a family plan, and dealing with the challenges of various disasters. The CDC offers advice on flu preparedness at www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu.

About the American Red Cross

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and counsels victims of disasters; provides nearly half of the nation's blood supply; teaches lifesaving skills; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization -- not a government agency -- and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its humanitarian mission. For more information, please visit www.redcross.org or join our blog at www.redcrosschat.org.
