Red Cross works in Local Communities
Red Cross Emergency Services spokesperson Graeme Lowe, said that you never know when or where an emergency event may occur. Things are changing and it’s not just fires and floods that are the norm these days.
“It’s important that there are local people organised and trained as Red Cross volunteers to help the community prepare prior to an emergency event occurring and then respond when needed. Communities can take a long time to recover from the effect of an emergency and Red Cross is an organisation that is there when needed.”
“Emergency Services volunteering is very community focussed. It’s a great way to get to know people, but also helps in building the resilience of your community for when disaster strikes.”
“Our experience shows us that many volunteers are eager to be trained and be highly-engaged with Emergency Services. There are a range of training opportunities opened to volunteers to further develop their skills and meet on a regular basis with their Emergency Service Team,” said Mr Lowe.
