The Ohio River Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross is pleased to announce the addition of Lawrence County to the group of counties where Red Cross disaster relief services are provided. Lawrence County joins Scioto, Pike, and Jackson counties as a part of the organization’s coverage area.
“We look forward to the addition of Lawrence County. The Ohio River Valley Chapter provides CPR and First Aid Training, blood collection services, emergency communications for military personnel and their families and emergency and disaster services to our communities,” said Debbie Smith, Chapter Executive. “The Red Cross relies on volunteers in responding to nearly 70,000 disasters nationwide every year. Most of those responses involve home and apartment fires,” she continued.
The Red Cross is currently seeking volunteers in Lawrence County to ensure the disaster and preparedness coverage in that area. Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer should visit http://www.redcross.org/oh/portsmouth/volunteer or call (740) 354-3293 or toll free at 1-888-354-3293.
