Contest focuses on emergency preparedness

American Red Cross San Diego/Imperial Counties Chapter and San Diego Gas & Electric have launched SAFE San Diego Youth Challenge.

In collaboration with KUSI-TV and the San Diego Padres, the challenge will educate area families about emergency preparedness and engage students to better prepare their family for an emergency. K-12 students are encouraged to share a story of how their family is prepared for an emergency and for a chance to win Padres tickets. Ten monthly winners will be chosen.  Additionally each month, one lucky student will be named “Safety Ace” and win the grand prize of sharing a Padres suite with friends and family.

The SAFE San Diego Youth Challenge will run through October 31 and will focus on a new safety topic each month: July — earthquake safety, August — water safety and September/October — public and fire safety

To enter go to www.preparesandiego.org. There students can test their safety knowledge, learn how to become better prepared and share their story, picture or video on how their family is prepared for an emergency.
