Emergencies can happen at any time and that is why Metro Transit is partnering with All Ready STL to help bi-state area residents learn how to prepare for all types of emergencies and disasters, whether they are at work, at home, or traveling in between. Metro volunteers will be distributing emergency preparedness information to customers at eight of the busiest public transit locations.

On Monday, September 10 from 6 to 8 a.m., emergency preparedness information will be distributed at the Shrewsbury Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Station, Fairview Heights MetroLink Station, North Hanley Transit Center, Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station, Central West End Transit Center, Grand MetroLink Station, Civic Center Transit Center, and 8th and Pine MetroLink Station. From 2 to 5 p.m. Monday afternoon, information will be distributed to customers at the Grand MetroLink Station and Central West End Transit Center.

Having an emergency kit is an essential part of being prepared for disasters and emergencies. Find out what items should be in your kit at www.AllReadySTL.com. Metro customers can register for a chance to win one of four Red Cross Emergency Preparedness Kits. Limit one entry per person. Register online at www.metrostlouis.org or by mailing the entry form or your name and phone number or email address to Metro, 707 N. 1st Street, Mailstop #146, St. Louis, MO 63102. Entries are due by noon on September 27. The drawing will be held on September 28. Winners will be notified by phone or email.
