M. H. West & Co., Inc. associate Erica Cage is a member of the Greater Richmond Red Cross Leadership Development Council Class of 2010. Recently, she toured the American Red Cross Disaster Supply Warehouse. Erica commented on the size of the facility, noting that it is as large as 12 football fields. The warehouse can hold enough supplies for 500,000 people for 3 days.
During the tour Erica was able to see how the facility would operate if a disaster were to occur. She also ate an already prepared disaster meal and insisted that the meal tasted better than expected. The tour gave Erica the impression that the Greater Richmond Red Cross was well organized and ready to assist.
