(ST. GEORGE, Utah) - AAA Utah has joined forces with the American Red Cross Utah Region to create an innovative disaster preparedness training program called “Ready, Set, Respond!” today, Wednesday, March 19th at 5:30 p.m. The program will be held at the Washington County Administration Building, 197 E. Tabernacle St. George. The purpose for series of FREE training workshops is to help every day citizens prepare for and respond to local emergencies and disasters. When disaster strikes first responders must go to the areas that have the greatest need. Unfortunately, they cannot be everywhere at once. During these moments, it is vital that community members help make up the difference. During this free 90-minute Red Cross training participants will receive personal preparedness information, learn how to prepare for natural disasters common to our area and how to respond and assist following and assist following a local emergency or disaster. AAA will host training sessions throughout the coming months across the state of Utah.
