American Red Cross hosts family safety day

RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) -

The American Red Cross of Southeast and Southeastern Coastal Georgia brought families together for education on natural disasters on Saturday, during a Family Safety Day at Richmond Hill High School.

The event was to help prepare residents for wildfires, hurricanes, tornados, and other natural disasters in a fun way allowing for families to learn from multiple recreational activities.

The Red Cross partnered with the Bryan County Emergency Management Agency to conduct a wildfire exercise and practice evacuation.

A shelter drill was also conducted to test the readiness of all participates during emergency situations.

"We hope that they take away that the more you are prepared, the better off you are for multiple situations," said Jeff Barnes, Bryan County Disater Team Captian.

"You can help yourself and your neighbor by being prepared for any event."

People enjoyed free food, games for the kids, and the chance to win free gift cards.
