RED CROSS HAS Y2K PREPAREDNESS CHECK LIST

The American Red Cross has developed a brochure that lists the potential problems that could arise as a result of the Y2K "bug" and tells you what can be done to prepare for it.
The brochure is available locally by calling 774-0375.
The President's Council on Y2K Conversion, established by the White House and a Special Senate Committee, have attempted to identify specific problem areas. They include utilities, banking and finance, health care, transportation, telecommunications, pension and mutual funds, emergency planning, and business in general.
The computer problems could result in loss of power for extended periods, break down in telecommunications and transportation gridlock.
The American Red Cross brochure offers information about the Y2K technology and a preparedness checklist.
