Disaster Volunteer Classes

All too often on dangerous winter mornings we're reminded of what can happen along heavily traveled routes like Interstates-94 and 196 in Michigan's Great Southwest.  Chain reaction crashes can turn into major disasters.  Fortunately we have the resources of the American Red Cross West Michigan Region close at hand.  

That team here in the region is now actively looking to increase the number of disaster volunteers in Southwest Michigan.  Berrien County Chapter Executive Breez Ettl says that if you've ever thought about helping people both locally and nationally in times of crisis, you can now take your first step in becoming a Red Cross Volunteer.

If you find yourself intrigued by that possibility, you are invited to join the upcoming Disaster Services Overview Training coming to South Haven. This training will cover key roles and responsibilities of the Red Cross when responding to disasters, as well as discuss additional opportunities available in the community.  If you are interested you MUST sign up in advance.  The class will be conducted Thursday, December 12, 2013 from 9am until noon at St. Basil Catholic Church located at 513 Monroe Boulevard in South Haven.  

To register your planned attendance at the class session, please call 269-556-9619.  

The Red Cross has witnessed first-hand the astounding safety, security and planning steps that county, city, and nuclear officials have taken to ensure the well-being of our entire community. Should any incident occur, the Red Cross is committed to providing shelter and aid to the people of Southwest Michigan.
