If an emergency happens where you work, volunteer or study, will you be ready?  Will those in charge know what to do?  Those are questions being asked by local emergency responders as the Red Cross gets ready for this Friday's Ready Rating training program.  It will be held at the Hortica location in Edwardsville from 11:30am-12:30pm.

Ready Rating is a free, Web-based membership program designed to help businesses, organizations and schools become better prepared for emergencies.  Executive Director of the Red Cross chapter based in Alton, Robin Summers, says an assessment looks at possible threats and their possible impacts.
