SPOKANE, Wash. – Two more local Red Cross volunteers left for Billings, Montana Wednesday afternoon to aid in the disaster relief efforts as a result of numerous wild fires.
The volunteers are driving over in an Emergency Response Communication Vehicle. It is one of only thirteen such vehicles in the nation owned by the Red Cross. These vehicles can set up an emergency communications system in as little as two hours when deployed.
Area Red Cross Volunteers have been deployed to serve in a number of capacities in both Colorado and Montana: communications, emergency response vehicle drivers, health, finance and logistics.
All disaster services are provided with no cost to disaster victims.
