Red Cross Using Film to Promote Preparedness

Kern County’s Red Cross chapter is using the film “San Andreas” to educate people about disaster preparedness.

Jennifer Stoker is with the agency and says the film, which centers around a 9.8-magnitude earthquake devastating California, should prompt discussions about staying safe.

“People will probably be a little more curious, maybe to see what the Red Cross does, or see how they, personally, can be prepared if a disaster happens to them,” she said.

The group will be handing out pamphlets to moviegoers at the Edwards Bakersfield Stadium 14 on Ming Avenue through the weekend.
