Red Cross seeks volunteers as wildfire season approaches

Red Cross seeks volunteers as wildfire season approaches

The forecast still calls for a busy wildfire season in the northwest, which means the American Red Cross will be in need of volunteers.

The Red Cross is looking for folks to help out in their shelters, actively licensed nurses, paramedics and EMTs to assist with health services and partner organizations to help support pet sheltering efforts in emergencies.

“The coronavirus pandemic will make it challenging to deploy trained disaster volunteers from other parts of the country should an emergency occur. In light of this, the Red Cross is asking you to be ready to help your community,” said Alex Dieffenbach, Northwest Region CEO. “Train now to be a Red Cross volunteer and answer the call to help if the need arises here in our region.”

If you are interested in volunteering, you can visit redcross.org/volunteertoday or reach out directly at JoinUsNW@ redcross.org.
