Red Cross supports national shelters

During the Hurricane Emily, Red Cross housed 68 residents in its shelter in George Town, and also sent teams of volunteers to all national shelters on the island.

All volunteers were trained in shelter management and administration of first aid and CPR. These volunteers, equipped with first aid and survival kits, provided close support to the shelter wardens assigned by the National Hurricane Committee, said a Red Cross press release.

Red Cross volunteers were prepared for the worst but luckily Emily did not put their expertise to test. The release said volunteers were happy for having done their service, and getting more experience in the event of future disasters.
