Community disaster education



Safety classes for adults and youth

The region also mobilizes local volunteers and resources to help respond to disasters across the nation.



In 2011, the region:



Responded to a disaster or prepared a member of the community every 4 hours.



During the 2011 Western North Dakota flood response, the Red Cross provided approximately 16,500 overnight stays in shelters, nearly 500,000 meals and snacks and also handed out more than 300,000 relief items.



Over 36,000 community members learned lifesaving skills in CPR, first aid and water safety.
