Red Cross Participates in Hazmat Evacuation Drill

On Saturday, August 24th the Red Cross participated in a hazmat evacuation drill in Craig. The Red Cross opened a shelter at the Boys & Girls Club of Craig. 12 volunteers from Moffat, Rio Blanco, Routt, Summit and Mesa Counties joined together for the exercise.

The 3 live-in houses that make up "Horizons for the Handicapped" practiced their evacuation plan by bringing all of their residents to the Red Cross shelter with their caregivers. It was an excellent opportunity for the residents and the Red Cross to test our ability to accommodate their needs!
