Even before Hurricane Season 2012 has officially started, two named storms have already formed, leading the American Red Cross to take extra measures to be prepared. The first-ever “Hurricane Rally” to recruit and train new volunteers took place last Saturday at the University of Texas at Arlington as a new hurricane season begins.
As the official evacuation site for the Houston/Galveston area, it’s critical that the American Red Cross in the Metroplex trains new volunteers before they’re needed, and that is exactly what we did with our new volunteers who attended the rally for classes and comraderie!
