"In Eastern South Dakota, 80 percent of the disasters to which we respond are home fires", explained Ross. "But our greatest need is for volunteer members of the Disaster Action Team".
Ross also explained the Red Cross has a number of free apps the public can download for free that offer information and alerts. They worked with community activists to call on the US Department of Justice to investigate the Red Cross. The residents left the home believing the trash fire was out, but that was not the case.
COHOES, N.Y. The American Red Cross will join forces with the city, the Cohoes Fire Department and other community partners on Saturday, Jan. 27, to help local families prepare for home fires.
Red Cross volunteers remain available to the families for support, counseling and referrals to local agencies that may provide long-term assistance during their recovery. All employees evacuated safely, fire crews said.
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies almost half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides global humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. Blankets and comfort kits containing personal care items were also provided. "Some of the folks have even deployed a few times", Dinsdale said. "What's important for us is to be able to support and work with clients". Turner said she never thought it would cause an uproar.
"The Red Cross will be here as long as there is need", said Kimberly Coley, executive director, in a statement. Heather Allemang, Red Cross Disaster Program Manager, talks volunteers through detailed processes of assisting clients after going through a disaster.
They also need help from volunteers to help be someone who installs smoke alarms.
