The Red Cross Continues to Look For Volunteers.

 

 

The Canadian Red Cross Manitoba Disaster Management Manager Cailin Hodder told the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce yesterday their role is to help vulnerable people.  She says to do that they are looking to expand their Disaster Management Teams across Manitoba and the north.  Hodder says they have 270 volunteers in the program including 48 in the north with 9 of those in the Flin Flon area but they are looking for 5 to 10 more here to respond to disasters including home fires. She explains they currently are in the process of building their team in Flin Flon and they hope that it will be finalized with a 24-7 on call schedule and their entire tool kit to respond to any house fire by October of this year.  She adds that team is about half way there and they have a little bit more training and a little bit more recruitment to push in order to build their team.
