Red Cross Kicks Off Ambitious Training Schedule
(Community Gets Ready for Next Hurricane Season)

Hurricane Katrina brought out the best in this community, as we fed, clothed, housed, and comforted complete strangers in need. Thousands of people offered their time and service in the relief effort, and the American Red Cross would like to tap into that goodwill to make Central Alabama a disaster-resistant community. One of our goals is to better coordinate and use “spontaneous volunteers,” but we’d like to train as many as possible in advance of the next catastrophe.

The highlight of this “Red Cross Month of Training” will come in the last weekend of March, with a two-day disaster exercise. More information to come…

The volunteers and staff of the Birmingham Area Chapter invite everyone to find out about local training opportunities over the next several weeks. We’ve ramped up an aggressive training schedule. You can look and link to the updated schedule at
