A toothbrush, a blanket, a bed, a bandage — things most of us take for granted. But with the unpredictable nature of most emergencies, basic life necessities are often difficult to find when people need them the most.

As a community member, with many staff living and working in the Omaha area, TransCanada has seen first-hand when people are ripped from their homes due to emergencies, such as wildfires, tornadoes, flash floods and blizzards.

That is why TransCanada has responded by donating $8,000 to the American Red Cross, Nebraska/Southwest Iowa Region for a disaster relief trailer in Omaha, Neb., that will serve the North Central and Northeastern parts of the state.
