Red Cross trains volunteers for disasters


Austin (KXAN)- As hurricane season begins, the American Red Cross is holding a statewide training session for volunteers about how to handle disasters.

Hundreds of disaster volunteers across the state set up shelters and put their training into action during a disaster exercise. With the guidance of experienced Red Cross shelter workers and instructors, volunteers worked through stations and practiced the necessary roles for running a Red Cross shelter, including registration, feeding and dormitory management.
