Storm Readiness
Ensure you have the proper equipment!

Last week's storms put into perspective the need to have the appropriate equipment for any type of weather.  Rain storms are expected Tuesday, January 26 and there is always the possibility we may need assistance from our volunteers.

Please check to make sure you have appropriate warm weather clothing (low temps. in Anaheim on 1/23 were 31 degrees) and appropriate rain clothing which may include calf-high rubber boots, and a full rain suit (available from stores such as Harbor Freight, Lowes and Home Depot).
