American Red Cross Volunteers are operating a shelter in Larimer County to help residents displaced by the Galena Wildfire burning in Lory State Park west of Fort Collins. A volunteer Red Cross Shelter Team opened a shelter in the gymnasium at Cache la Poudre Elementary School 3515 County Road 54G, LaPorte, CO. Your American Red Cross, in partnership with Salvation Army and the Touchstone Mountain Outreach team and Larimer Humane Society are providing shelter, food, mental health and care for other personal needs of the families being evacuated.
"We'll be here as long as we are needed." said Adam Rae, Red Cross Public Information Officer onsite at the shelter. For more information about fire prevention and preparing for other disasters, visit www.redcross.org/Colorado.
