John Richey is thanked by Leigh Hewer, for his description of how the Red Cross organizes relief for communities hit by fires, flooding, storms, run-away trains, etc.


John Richey is Operations Director for the Southern Interior Region of the Canadian Red Cross.  He described the numerous ways Red Cross volunteers respond to disasters in their communities.  He's hoping a few members of each Vernon Rotary club will join in training sessions, to be positioned among first responders in our area, should help be needed.  Leigh Hewer agreed to coordinate a response from our club.
