FEMA FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY
Two ways to help responders after a storm or tornado: check in w/ friends & family via text messaging & don't drive to the damaged areas. This allows emergency crews easier access to damaged areas & frees up cell bandwidth for emergency calls.
The American Red Cross, through its strong network of volunteers, donors and partners, is always there in times of need. We aspire to turn compassion into action so that...
...all people affected by disaster across the country and around the world receive care, shelter and hope;
...our communities are ready and prepared for disasters;
...everyone in our country has access to safe, lifesaving blood and blood products;
...all members of our armed services and their families find support and comfort whenever needed; and
...in an emergency, there are always trained individuals nearby, ready to use their Red Cross skills to save lives.

In the aftermath of disaster, when sorrow and devastation are everywhere, we're there.
With a hot shower and a hot meal. With a prayer. With love. All over America, we help people to clear away the debris, the mud and the ashes. We make God's love real to those who desperately need it.
