Southern Hills Church in Salem is now a recognized American Red Cross Shelter. Our building will be used to house community members in the event of a disaster.
On Thursday, June 6th from 5:00pm - 8:00pm the American Red Cross will be at here to perform a mock shelter exercise. Anyone from the community is welcome to attend and participate.
We held a shelter training class about a month ago. Those people are the ones who will be focused on running the shelter since they have received previous training. Whoever wants to help be a part of the shelter can be split into volunteers in the dorm area, logistics, registration, feeding, other areas as needed. For the mock exercise we will also need people to participate as clients or shelter residents.
This exercise will help everyone involved feel less anxiety when it comes time for a shelter. If you have any other questions please let me know.
