The Red Cross has been a major part of the recovery efforts in the northeast where Hurricane Sandy hit several weeks ago. The Lubbock Red Cross was also on hand to assist families whose houses were destroyed in fires over the Thanksgiving weekend. Kurnow said that the primary responsibility for the Red Cross is to provide immediate emergency services, such as food and clothing, and helping victims find other services that can assist them long-term if they need it. Kurnow also said that, no matter what kind of disaster occurs, it’s important for families to have a disaster plan in effect.
