DULUTH, Minn. – Red Cross of Northern Minnesota helping out with recovery efforts in the aftermath of tornadoes and flooding in Mississippi and Alabama.
The Red Cross says the experienced the volunteers gain from going to disaster areas often gives them valuable experience to bring back to the Northland.
“When our volunteers deploy to a disaster like this they help the people there but really important for our area is they bring back capacity expertise and experience to respond to disasters locally,” said the executive director of the American Red Cross Northern Minnesota, Dan Williams.
