Red Cross Hosts Downtown Council Meeting

councilcropThe Twin Cities Area Chapter was honored to host the April 9 meeting of the Minneapolis Downtown Council. More than 50 local business leaders joined us for lunch and learned more about preparing their families and organizations for disasters, including health and safety training, Ready Rating and AEDs (automatic external defibrillators). Participants also heard from Shane Zahn, with the Minneapolis Downtown Improvement District & Minneapolis Police Department, about personal safety workshops, the SafeZone initiative and more. Even B. Safe Bear got in on the fun with Council President & CEO Mark Stenglein (pictured right with B. Safe Bear, center, and our Northern MN Red Cross Region CEO Phil Hansen, far right). Special thanks to all those who helped make the event a success!
