Cot assembling, table building, canteen operating: American Red Cross volunteers from the south sector recently put their disaster training to the test during South Sector Field Day & Muster.

Organized by Cathy Karras, teams got together in Harwich last weekend for the friendly competition.

“We competed against each other in setting up a cot, setting up a shelter registration table, setting up a canteen operation, familiarizing ourselves with Emergency Response Vehicles and where items were located, disaster assessment in a fire scenario and even some disaster jeopardy,” explained Rachel Potts, Disaster Services Manager for the South Sector.
