Disaster Preparedness: Coming to a Computer Near You

Red Cross and Citrix Online team up to present a community Webinar

With so many people leading busier lives, preparing your family for a disaster may drop down on your list of priorities. However, the American Red Cross-Santa Barbara County Chapter has partnered with Citrix Online to bring disaster preparedness to you.

Click here to log on to the Red Cross Web site and register for its first ever disaster preparedness Webinar, at 11:30 a.m. Friday, May 14. However, if you can’t make this time, the Webinar will be available for viewing as a recorded course.

The Webinar will cover topics such as how to build a disaster supplies kit, how to make a disaster action plan for your family and how to prepare your home for a disaster.

The Red Cross knows disaster preparedness is important, which is why it is trying this innovative way of getting more people prepared.

“We have been doing face-to-face presentations for years, but Citrix Online had the vision to help us reach more people than ever before through the use of GoToWebinar,” said Dr. Paul Myers, director of emergency services. “We have been increasing the technologies we use to help Santa Barbara County be better prepared, so using Go ToWebinar was a natural addition to our program.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
