Red Cross teaches disaster preparedness

The Youth Center was graced with the presence of Ana Ortiz, AmeriCorps from the American Red Cross, for a disaster preparedness training (special thanks to Kimberley for hooking us up with the Red Cross, you rock!).  Youth members and staff learned about preparation for earthquakes, power outages, and other disasters that may occur here in the San Diego region.  After taking a quiz on what we learned, the members were given disaster preparedness kits, which included first aid kits, information, and a bowl (which Coral is modeling here as a hat...fashionable, eh?).  Thank you to Ana and the Red Cross for the information!  Special note: if you're in the top bunk of a bunk bed during an earthquake, stay in bed and put a pillow over your head until the shaking is over.  On the other hand, if you're on the bottom bunk, get off and find cover elsewhere, just in case the top bunk collapses.  If you didn't know, now you know.
