Disaster Relief Volunteer Training

The North Central Texas American Red Cross chapter is hosting a volunteer rally Saturday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. It will be at the American Red Cross North Central Texas Chapter, 1809 5th Street, Wichita Falls, Texas.

New volunteers will be able to take their introductory course, "Disaster Services: An Overview from 1:30p.m.-4:30p.m. This course is the first step in becoming a trained Red Cross volunteer.

The event is free and everyone is invited to learn about what the Red Cross does and what training you need to become a volunteer.

"We responded repeatedly to storms and wildfires last year," said Katrina Farmer, executive director, American Red Cross. "But on top of that, we also get called every time a family loses their home to a structure fire. That was 98 families last year, so every few days, our volunteers are needed." 

Interested future Volunteers who are unable to attend the Volunteer Rally are encouraged to click on www.redcross.org/wichitafalls and fill out a volunteer application.
