#SafetySaturday. September is #NationalPreparednessMonth, and the American Red Cross reminds pet owners that their furry family members are dependent on you for their safety during an emergency.

Your disaster plans must include your pets, and we have steps you can take to help keep your beloved pets safe.

Make an evacuation plan that includes you, your loved ones, and your pets. Many hotels and some shelters do not accept animals, so plan where you would take your pet. And, when you pack your disaster kit, assemble one for your pet too. Details about what to include are available here https://www.redcross.org/.../pet-disaster-preparedness.html

A Firsthand Account of What It’s Like Living with Sickle Cell Anemia

“I’ve always tried to never let Sickle Cell anemia define me,” said Larae Morning. “I am normal until the disease disables me.” In December of 2020, Larae felt like she was experiencing a normal Sickle Cell crisis. I thought, “I’ll finish my shift, and then I will go get a hydration and pain control at Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH), but that changed as it seemed like what I thought was a minor sickle cell crisis would result into an episode that’d change my life.”...

Did you know that #homefires are the disaster the #redcross responds to the most?

#NationalPreparednessMonth - Over the past week, August 30th – September 5th, our dedicated and trained Arizona and New Mexico Red Cross volunteers teams cared for over 45 people this past week after more than 17 cases opened across Arizona and New Mexico.
Home fires claim seven lives every day, but you can help change that. This September, join our national movement, “Sound the Alarm,” and pledge to keep your family safe by taking 2 simple steps:
1) Practice your 2-minute escape drill
2) Test your smoke alarms monthly.

Thank you to all who came out to support our mission. You can also support those in your community impacted by home fires and other disasters by donating to: https://www.redcross.org/donate/donation.html/

Volunteers are the backbone of the American Red Cross, and we welcome you to consider joining our team. We have volunteer opportunities to match a wide range of interests and time commitments. Contact your local chapter to find out more about what is available in your area. https://www.redcross.org/local/az-nm/volunteer.html
