Sheltering 101: Region-Wide Training in Mid-Florida!

San Pedro Shelter
On Saturday June 8, 2013, we will be holding a region wide day of training in 5 of our Mid-Florida Region Counties.

2013 Hurricane Season Sheltering Workers Needed!

On Saturday June 8, 2013, we will be holding a region wide day of training at the five different locations listed below. The trainings will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 5:00 p.m. Once completed you will be an American Red Cross shelter worker prepared to support the 2013 Hurricane season and beyond!

Last year, the American Red Cross provided nearly half of the 163,000 overnight shelter stays after Superstorm Sandy. Families in the impacted areas were forced out of their homes due to the severity of the storm, and left without the basic needs and comforts to which they were accustomed. The Red Cross was there to help these families in their great time of need by providing emergency shelter, medical assistance, food and emotional comfort during this disaster.

During the Hurricane Season, the Red Cross is prepared to open shelters in pre-identified facilities within hours. Through the support of our dedicated workforce of volunteers, we are there to create a safe and welcoming environment for all residents, including parents, caregivers and people with functional or access needs.
