Arizona Red Cross Helps Prepare for Hurricane Harvey

Sedona AZ (August 24, 2017) — The Arizona, New Mexico and El Paso Region of the American Red Cross is mobilizing staff and volunteers in anticipation of Hurricane Harvey. Initially, eight people, including the Regional CEO, Kurt Kroemer and all regional “ERV’s”, Emergency Response Vehicles, will deploy to Texas where help will be provided in preparation of the hurricane, as well as assistance with sheltering, food and water if evacuations are activated.

Red Cross staff and volunteers from the Arizona, New Mexico and El Paso Region will be providing expertise in the areas of Government Relations, Sheltering, Food and Casework.

“Our core mission is on full display today as volunteers and staff from our region respond to help our neighboring Red Cross regions that will be impacted in Texas,” said Colin Williams, Regional Communications Officer. He went on to say, “As we prepare for a widespread and potentially destructive disaster, it is time, now more than ever to consider making a donation to the Red Cross. We are grateful for our generous donors and recognize that their contributions will ensure those affected can recover as quickly as possible.”

Today is the day to make final preparations for the storm! Please take Harvey seriously!
