Red Cross Looks For Volunteers

The Red Cross is hosting an information meeting tonight for anyone who might want to be a volunteer for the agency.

Anyone who wants to learn what Red Cross volunteers do in disasters and emergencies and what's required if they'd like to join the team can find out more tonight.

Last year, Red Cross volunteers called to 111 disaster or emergency events throughout the province.   The events ranging from house fires and flooding.

Many volunteers also went to other provinces to help in the aftermath of disasters like the wildfire at Slave Lake, Alberta or major flooding in Manitoba.

The information night runs between 6:30 and 7:30 tonight at the Red Cross office on Lansdowne Avenue.
