Other Trainings

American Red Cross Classes

Disaster training is offered every other month through 4-day mini-institutes at the Greater Houston Area Red Cross Chapter Headquarters at 2700 Southwest Freeway, Houston. Disaster classes are also offered at various other times, both at Chapter Headquarters and at the Houston area branch offices. In addition, some disaster classes may be taken as online self-study courses.

Neighborhood Ready

The Neighborhood Ready program is a 90-minute, community-led program designed to get people thinking about how to make a plan, build a kit, stay informed, and get to know their neighbors.

A trained speaker will come out to show a short movie, talk about preparedness, and help the members of your community work through a participant guide. After completing the course, participants should have a good start on their family emergency plan and how to work with their neighbors before, during, and after a disaster.

To request information on how to conduct a Neighborhood Ready session in your community, contact our office.
