Red Cross Disaster Exercise
The American Red Cross prepares for thunderstorm and tornado season with a disaster exercise tomorrow. More than 20 Red Cross volunteers will participate in the testing and teaching exercise.
American Red Cross Emergency Service Director Karla Long says in time of disaster, one of the primary responsibilities of the Red Cross is to open safe housing.
Long adds anyone wanting to volunteer with the Red Cross can contact the Midland Empire Chapter in St. Joseph at 816-232-8439.
