Here�s an important message from our Regional Executive Director�It may seem overwhelming or unimportant to get prepared, but we know from recent floods, hurricanes, tornadoes and local house fires that taking steps ahead of time can help each of us, our families and our communities respond better and stay safer in a disaster.

September is National Preparedness Month. The American Red Cross joins the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and a coalition of more than 1,500 organizations in helping us get prepared. Learn the three recommended preparedness actions to Be Red Cross Ready for emergencies: get a kit; make a plan; be informed. Take the Pledge to Prepare, get involved, and help to prepare New Hampshire.

Here are some tips from your local Granite Chapter of the American Red Cross:

Learn online about how to prepare by going to our Be Red Cross Ready education module (
