The American Red Cross is responding to Hurricane Matthew in five southeastern states and more than 3,000 Red Cross disaster workers have supported the relief efforts, and more will be needed as the massive response continues over the days and weeks ahead.
The Red Cross will hold two one-day workshops to train prospective disaster volunteers for deployment from 8 a.m to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at the American Red Cross Office, 145 South Broad Way in Salina, and Friday, Oct. 28, at the American Red Cross Office, 1900 East Douglas in Wichita.
The training will include an overview of disaster services, position-specific training, and deployment basics. Those wishing to volunteer must be at least 18 years-old, have a valid driver’s license and be available to deploy for two weeks within the next month. The Red Cross will cover all training and travel costs for individuals who are deployed.
