SOUTH CAROLINA -

As we head into the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season here in the Carolinas, the Red Cross will be training much needed new disaster responders, or volunteers.

"We're always in the need of volunteers. This year is a bigger concern because of the increase in prediction from the national hurricane center for hurricanes that may strike the coast" said Regional Disaster Program Officer, Tony Reid, in a statement.

The special one-day training will consist of three basic courses instructed by Western Carolinas Red Cross division in Greenwood, Greenville, Spartanburg and Walhalla, South Carolina as well as Hendersonville and Asheville, North Carolina during the next two months, July and August.

If you are looking to sign up for the free training, you are encouraged to email WCRDVMT@RedCross.org indicating the location of the class.
