Red Cross Volunteers 5.24.08

Since we have been back in town, we have signed up as volunteers for the American Red Cross and have completed several classes. We figure since we have free time, why not give back somehow?! My family have been volunteering for several years and both my Mom & Dad have gone on several national disasters to help. They shared their knowledge with us on how to get started and we began training.

We have attended the following classes so far...

- Red Cross Volunteer Orientation
- Intro to Disaster Services
- Mass Care Overview
- First Aid/CPR
- Ready, Set, Roll - ERV Driving

Whew!! We are trained up to be ERV drivers - Emergency Response Vehicle. The ERV is mainly used for mobile feeding but can also be used to deliver supplies to those in need. We have met some fabulous people & are looking forward to being able to volunteer!

More to follow...
