Staffers, volunteers get schooled in disasters

Some new staffers and volunteers today took the first step in disaster response – Disaster Services: an Overview.

Led by Disaster Services and Training Associate Dave Ruete and Training Lead Becky Alden, the course introduced newcomers to the American Red Cross’ values, response actions and situational rundowns.

About 13 people attended the class, many of whom will go on to take more courses to better assist clients in times of need.
