Preparing for a Disaster

The Red Cross responded to a tornado touching down in Washington during a mock disaster Tuesday. It took place near Slatestone Road as the Beaufort County chapter worked on their response skills. It's an activity they hope will help them be better prepared should a disaster strike. Red Cross officials set up shelters, distributed food, and worked on evacuation plans. They say drills like this are beneficial to them, because this plan prepares them for any type of disaster.
