GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. On Wednesday, the American Red Cross is preparing for their Disaster Services Training Academy.
American Red Cross volunteers will receive training for disaster emergencies. The program runs October 11th through October 13.
Organizers say the two-day training prepares volunteers with the basic techniques if a disaster does occur.
"We'll be providing a whole different variety of cross training. Training volunteers how to run shelters. How to deliver hot meals in disaster times. How to work with clients after they lost their homes during a disaster,” said American Red Cross Executive Director Eric Myers.
Officials say this training will be at the American Red Cross facility at 5th and Gunnison. They also say it's free, and the public is welcome to join in.
