Looking for a way to help the Red Cross _and visit Staten Island?

Volunteers are still greatly needed for the Staten Island Storm Response Rehearsal to play the roles of Shelter Residents. It is critical to the success of our Spring Training that each shelter team get the opportunity to rehearse the opening, operating, and closing of a shelter with all of the blessings and complications a robust shelter population brings. Though Introduction to Disaster Services is recommended, no response training is necessary to fill this need. Family and friends are welcome to participate.

The exercise will take place Sunday, May 21, 2006 at PS 44, 80 Maple Parkway, Staten Island, New York from 8:00am-3:00pm. Breakfast, Lunch, and a debrief of the exercise are included in these times. Volunteers needing transportation to the site may meet at 150 Amsterdam Avenue no later than 7:00am, the bus will leave promptly at 7:15.

Please RSVP to if you are able to assist.
