Volunteers Still Needed For Flood Recovery

As we first reported last week, Putnam County did not qualify for Federal Emergency Management Agency assistance, but a long-term flood recovery effort is underway and needs volunteers.
If you are interested in helping with Phase I of what's being called the Long Term Flood Recovery initiative in Putnam County, there will be a training session held by one of the board members on Tuesday. It will be held from 11 am to noon in Room 370 of the University Center at Tennessee Tech Officials say volunteers will be requested to make phone calls to flood victims after receiving training from a local board member on how to conduct the phone interviews. The trainer will share a list of questions that must be asked and train participants on how to respond to random questions they may get as well.To participate, call Michelle Huddleston at 372-6120.
