american-red-crossFrankfort, KY – Wednesday, November 25, 2015 – American Red Cross is seeking volunteers with flexible schedules to respond to single and multi-family home fires in and around Frankfort and Franklin County.  Red Cross Disaster Action Team volunteers respond to assist families with shelter, support, and access to basic needs immediately following a home fire – often arriving on the scene while the fire is still burning.

An orientation for new volunteers will be held on Thursday, Dec. 10 at 6:00pm at the Frankfort Red Cross office at 318 Washington St.  Volunteers may apply online at http://www.redcross.org/volunteer.

American Red Cross responds to a disaster every 8 minutes, nearly all of these are home fires.  Free training is provided.
