Organizations that are prepared to respond to disasters and other emergencies are critical to building and sustaining resilient communities. That is why the American Red Cross launched Ready Rating in 2008. Ready Rating is a free, web-based, self-paced organizational emergency preparedness program that helps organizations of all types prepare appropriately, respond effectively, and recover quickly from disasters and other emergencies. Ready Rating tools meet or exceed the minimum standards for organizational preparedness set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
