From wildfires to ice storms and tornadoes, Oklahomans have a history of dealing with natural disasters. Now, the American Red Cross is making sure Tulsans are prepared for disasters. Theyâ€™re offering disaster readiness classes. The Red Cross hopes last month's ice storm inspires more people to be prepared for a disaster.
"We had so many people not prepared for that last storm,â€ GT Bynum with the Tulsa-Area American Red Cross said. â€œIts good to offer a course right after disaster strikes while it is still fresh in peoples minds."
The Red Cross says you should have a battery or crank radio and a gallon of water per person per day stashed away.
You can call the Red Cross for more information; their number is 918-831-1100.
