Red Cross prepares parents and kids for school with safety.

It was a great day on Friday August 13, 2010 as hundreds of parents and children attended the WGN TV back to school fair. It was a hot morning, and the Chicago Red Cross was on the scene offering tips on safety and beating the heat. Parents were thankful to the Red Cross for all the advice that was given to them to prepare for disasters. “I think safety is very important especially when it comes to my children,” Nancy Lewis said, “and I am personally thankful for everything the Red Cross offers from safety advice to disaster relief.” The Red Cross taught families all about what they needed to prepare for an emergency through escape plans, making a disaster kit, and a solid communication plan. The Red Cross provided pamphlets on safety, water bottles, and visual demonstrations on how to prepare an emergency disaster kit to all the parents and their children.
