Do you know what emergencies might affect you? If the streets of Melbourne flash flooded, toxic fires smothered the sky or if you had to evacuate your home in a rush, who and what would you want to protect most? Are you practically, emotionally and socially prepared when the worst comes?
We know that the more prepared you are for disasters, the less stressful they become. Red Cross and artist Kate Sulan have teamed up to equip you with simple, yet vital steps to protect yourself and the people you love, so you’re ready to grab and go when disaster strikes.
Once Red Cross have taken you through the practical steps of emergency preparedness with the use of the RediPlan, it’s then time to consider your emotional wellbeing. Kate Sulan, with advice from students at St Joseph’s Flexible Learning Centre, will give you some tips that keep you entertained, comfortable and feeling safe during a crisis.
