The Red Cross is challenging area residents to get prepared before a disaster strikes. Local area Red Cross rep Cherlyn Cain says on Friday teams will compete at Walmart in building a disaster kit. She explained the build a kit event is an event where they have teams of two people and they search the Walmart store for things that they would need if they had to evacuate from their homes for 72 hours on very short notice or if they were confined to their homes for 72 hours without hydro and water in the event of a natural disaster.
Cain says she hopes to have teams from the Flin Flon area and The Pas. The challenge starts at one o’clock Friday afternoon at Walmart. Walmart will also be holding a barbeque that afternoon from 12 to 3
