When the Cole Creek fire destroyed 15 homes near Casper, the American Red Cross of Wyoming was on the ground helping with cleanup and recovery. When the Niobrara River flooded Lusk, the Red Cross opened a shelter and helped coordinate recovery efforts. After the multi-vehicle pileups on I-80 last winter, Red Cross volunteers opened shelters in Laramie and Cheyenne to assist those affected. And the Red Cross of Wyoming responds to numerous home fires throughout the state every year.
With the vast geographic areas to cover within our great state, volunteers often are stretched thin in trying to respond to incidents and events.
The American Red Cross of Wyoming is in need of volunteers throughout Central Wyoming. New Red Cross volunteers are trained to assist with local disaster relief and preparedness programs.
