Alaskan Red Cross Volunteers Join Disaster Relief Effort

Over A Dozen Alaskans Dealing With Hurricane Sandy Aftermath


by Mike Ford

Red Cross shelters on the East Coast continue filling tonight as thousands of people are seeking shelter from the devastation of  "Superstorm" Sandy.

Trained disaster relief volunteers from Alaska have already been dispatched to the area and more are getting ready to head that way. Five Alaskan  Red Cross volunteers are already among the 2,300 disaster workers on scene and Thursday morning another eight are set to head south.

At least two of the Alaska volunteers bring hurricane response skills with them, after helping pick up the pieces left by hurricane Issac earlier this summer in the Gulf of Mexico

All the volunteers arriving from Alaska are well trained for any emergency they might face.
