Red Cross Apps To Help Get You Ready For the Storms

posted by Jennie James -

The Red Cross has LOADS of FREE apps for both Android and iPhone. I checked out my Play Store and they're all there: Hurricane, First Aid, Emergency, Pets, Blood Donations, etc!

-Also, the Red Cross of South & Central Texas has lots of information as well, like a list of shelters that are open in your area and how to prepare for emergencies. Check that out HERE

-Bexar County's Office of Emergency Management has a bunch of information on preparing an emergency kit for you, your family, and your pets. Check that out HERE.

Don't venture out in the storm if you don't have to. But if you have to get to work or school, be sure to check out a list of road closures and HALT locations on the county website. Check that out HERE.

Most importantly, if you see water on the road, TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN!

-The State Bar of Texas also has its legal hotline — (800) 504-7030.

The hotline — answered in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese — connects low-income people affected by a disaster with legal aid providers in their area who can help with such issues as replacing lost documents, answering insurance questions, helping with landlord-tenant problems, and handling consumer protection concerns such as price-gouging and contractor scams during the rebuilding process.

Callers can leave a message at any time. People who qualify for assistance will be matched with Texas lawyers who have volunteered to provide free, limited legal help. Additional resources are available HERE... HERE... and HERE.
