American Red Cross Statewide Drill

On Saturday, American Red Cross Chapters across Texas practice skills needed to step into action and help our community in the event of a disaster.

In Wichita Falls, the Red Cross partnered with The Wichita Falls Young Professionals to get the best results from the exercise.

“We've had simulated victims, we've had a tornado that has come across the area and we've opened up our shelter this morning. Our victims have checked in and now we're getting ready to serve lunch to them and provide services,” said Executive Director, American Red Cross Wichita Falls, Katrina Farmer

The drill began at 1:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon and ended at 3:00 p.m.
