American Red Cross Offers Free Ready Rating Membership

Organizations seeking disaster relief planning resources encouraged to reach out

Ninety-four percent of business owners believe that a disaster could seriously disrupt their businesses within the next two years, but one-third of these owners do not have a business continuity plan of any kind. Emergency preparedness planning for organizations is critical to minimize the impact of disasters on people, operations, property, and investments. For that reason, the American Red Cross has developed the Ready Rating program to help equip local organizations with the necessary tools and knowledge.

Ready Rating is a free and easy, web-based membership program that allows organizations to use one of two proprietary assessments to measure their current state of preparedness. Then, based on the organization's score, the program provides a Next Steps Report which helps them develop a complete Business Continuity Program.
