Disaster Relief Training To Be Discussed

The temperatures aren't doing much to help, but local emergency management officials have been observing Severe Weather Awareness Week this week. Meanwhile, Putnam County residents who are interested in finding out about how they can help in local emergency disaster relief are invited to attend an informational meeting sponsored by the Red Cross tomorrow at Cookeville Regional Medical Center. It will be held from 9 to 10:30 a.m. During the meeting visitors will be able to learn about becoming part of a local Disaster Action Team -- described as the Red Cross's first responders to local people affected by fire, flooding, tornadoes, earthquakes and other disasters. For more information, call 528-3475.
