The American Red Cross is searching for volunteers in Greenbrier County for DAT-Disaster Action Team. Red Cross will provide training, either in person or via ZOOM, for volunteers to respond to families of house fires. After the initial training, DAT responds to home fire victims within two hours, night or day, rain or shine, either on the scene or coordinating remotely to provide immediate compassion and care. Greenbrier County currently does not have volunteers for DAT. Individuals or community service groups are encouraged to consider becoming a DAT volunteer to provide comfort and care to victims of house fires.
The American Red Cross will offer an informational session on Tuesday, Nov. 16 at 6 p.m. at the Henning Church of God on Vago Road. If you, or your organization are interested in attending please email your first name, last name and phone number to Katie.Thompson@redcross.org. You can also call or text to 304-962-7488.
The training is free, but you must pre-register.
