What Exactly Is Red Cross Doing To Get Ready for Gustav?

Map indicating the pre-positioning of Red Cross resources:

Here’s a sample of what we’re pre-positioning:

  • Moving nearly 200 mobile feeding trucks into Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
  • Moving more than 100,000 cots
  • Moving 200,000 blankets
  • Moving tens of thousands of comfort kits and ready-to-eat meals.
  • Supplies are being loaded onto 99 shelter support trailers to be dispersed throughout the region.
  • Red Cross workers have been moving to the region yesterday and today.

Before landfall, Red Cross will be on the ground to help with shelters, food, and emotional support as evacuation orders are given.
