Red Cross urges preparedness

Following the recent elevation of the terror threat level on the East Coast, the Snohomish County chapter of the American Red Cross urges people here to prepare for the unexpected.

Don’t be scared, just ready.

“Taking appropriate precautions is important, not only for the protection it can offer, but also for the sense of calmness it can provide in troubling times,” said Chuck Morrison, chapter executive director.

Preparedness recommendations are available at www.redcross. org or by calling the Snohomish County chapter at 425-252-4103.

The Red Cross also offers group presentations, and sells preparedness supplies at 2530 Lombard Ave.

* Thomas Valley, director of corporate affairs for International Speedway Corp., said the company would try to get a major stock car weekend race in the Pacific Northwest if a track is built here, but he did not confirm that the Pacific Northwest would get one of NASCAR’s big-league Nextel Cup races. A story on Page A6 Wednesday incorrectly summarized Valley’s comments.
