Iowans with concerns about how to best be prepared for acts of terrorism have yet another outlet. The American Red Cross has launched a tollfree phone line designed to provide callers with all sorts of preparedness information. Bobbie Bishop, spokeswoman for the Central Iowa chapter, says 866-GET-INFO is up and running. Bishop says the phone line isn’t just for learning how to prepare for acts of terrorism, but it also covers family and workplace preparedness for tornadoes, floods, fires and other disasters. She says the Red Cross is trying to get Iowans to consider action in five areas:Make a disaster plan with your family and workplace, build a disaster survival kit, get trained in C-P-R and first aid, volunteer in your local community and give blood. The 866-GET-INFO hotline is staffed every day from 7 A.M. until 11 P.M.
