The DAT is an integral part of any Red Cross chapter’s disaster preparedness and response capability. Very often they are among the first people on the scene of a local emergency.
The DAT is on-call 24-hours a day, seven days a week, although individual members take turns being available to answer the call for help. They are ready to serve residents of Bradley, Polk, Meigs and McMinn Counties.
To learn how to become a trained volunteer of this team, attend the next free New Volunteer Orientation Aug. 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the chapter. Call Beverly at 472-1595 ext.108 to register.
