Promise Week Set May 3-7

It's a simple pledge that promises to keep you safe. It's called "Promise Week" and it was created by groups throughout the East Texas Community, to help make sure you and your families are prepared for emergency situations.

The promise involves just five simple steps, outlined by the Red Cross, they are: Make a plan, Build a kit, Get trained, Volunteer, Give blood.

Organizers said many families just aren't aware they're out there.

"That's the point of promise week is to ask (families) to get out, to attend any of the events that we're having this week and make a promise," said Susan Campbell, organizer.

Promise week begins Monday and runs through Friday.
