with the private sector's unprecedented response to Hurricane Katrina," said Harold McGraw III, chairman, Business Roundtable and chairman, president & CEO, The McGraw-Hill companies. "We are proud to support Mark Everson, the new CEO of the American Red Cross, and are encouraged that he sees business as a partner. We are confident that this initiative can serve as an important new model for public-private partnerships in disaster response, one that will strengthen our nation's system for responding to communities in crisis."

"The generosity of the private sector in this country is unparalleled," said Mark W. Everson, President and CEO of the American Red Cross. "The Red Cross is grateful to Business Roundtable for leading American businesses in identifying solutions to help prepare families and communities before disasters occur and in providing relief in the aftermath of disasters. I am especially pleased that we are able to announce this partnership in September during National Preparedness Month."

"The business community, with its assets and expertise, should contribute to disaster relief, not only with money and products but with its greatest resource: hard working, dedicated people," said Richard L. Keyser, Chairman and CEO of Grainger and Chairman of Business Roundtable's Partnership for Disaster Response. "Expanding the Red Cross's Ready When the Time Comes program, which trains employees to serve as volunteers during a disaster, is one way businesses can help the Red Cross provide solutions to people in crisis."

The organizations have also developed resources to help individuals, families and companies learn how to improve their disaster preparedness plans. They are available on http://www.respondtodisaster.org and http://www.redcross.org/flash/brr/English-flash/default.asp.
