The Red Cross recently launched the Local Disaster Shelter Initiative, a program to help towns be ready to take care of themselves in an emergency, in case outside help can’t get to them. That was the scenario in several communities during Tropical Storm Irene a year and a half ago.

Larry Crist is the regional executive director for the Red Cross of Vermont and New Hampshire Valley. He spoke with Vermont Edition about how the program is going.
