Spring Flooding – Red Cross Update
With spring comes the melting of snow and occasionally mixed in precipitation. Over the past couple of days we have seen an increase in our area with flooding risk alerts. The Canadian Red Cross is prepared to help communities but we should all do our part and prepare as well as protect ourselves.
The Canadian Red Cross has given us three simple steps to prepare for potential flooding:
- Know the risks – be aware of flooding risks in your community
- Make a plan and talk to your family about it. Do your children know what to do in a flooding emergency??
- Get or make a kit – put together or assemble your own kit in case of emergencies.
