Utah Red Cross Sheltering Exercise

Please see how you can help or be involved with the Utah Red Cross Sheltering exercise for this Great Utah Shakeout starting April 17th. (follow the link at the bottom of the page)

The following is a message from ARC to all of our Citizen Corps Programs. 

We would like to invite the Citizen Corp Councils across the state of Utah and their partner program members to be a part of "The Great Utah Shake Out" after the "Drop cover and hold on!" exercise.

After the initial "Drop, cover, and hold on!" activities are over on April 17th, 2012 The American Red Cross and our partners as part of our participation  in The Great Utah Shake Out; will keep the public interaction/education going! We will open three full scale shelters across Utah. A shelter in Salt Lake City will open on April 17th for two full days! Our Shelters in Provo and Layton will be open for 24 hours beginning on April 18th.

We have an affiliated volunteer roster of close to 750 CERT, MRC, USAonWatch, and Citizen Corp Council leadership members. They have invested their valuable time training to help the American Red Cross run emergency shelters. Only a small few have had the opportunity to exercise their sheltering skills. The Great Utah Shake presents another opportunity to continue our emergency shelter education and training. We know you and many of your members will be busy during the Great Utah Shake Out but for those who are not or would like to take it one step further; sign up today to help the American Red Cross during our exercise. There are two methods of participation you can see by simply going to www.utahredcross.org and push the button which will take you to (http://utahredcross.org/general.asp?SN=2959&OP=17592&IDCapitulo=I2OD6QV708)
