The Red Cross is an important source of guidance about emergencies and disasters both nationally and internationally. The Red Cross Rediplan is a great resource designed to assist families and households as they prepare for potential emergency events. There are other resources that provide guidance about how to meet challenges and support people during and after an event has occurred. There are particular resources about psychological first aid, drought, donating food, and how to assist children, young people and the elderly. This site contains many valuable fact sheets and booklets.
