Rosie Travella, CEO of the Central New York American Red Cross, talks about emergency preparedness
Onondaga County emergency professionals want to prepare central New York for a potential disaster. First they want to know whether everyday citizens are ready for anything from the storm of the century to an act of terrorism.
Central New Yorkers are helping the millions of people affected by Superstorm Sandy. Agencies like the Salvation Army and Church World Service are raising money or collecting donations for storm victims. Others, like Red Cross Disaster Relief volunteers will go to the areas hardest hit by the storm.
