Red Cross / Ham Radio public meeting

For full info, see Daily Trib article referenced below.

Short version:
“Statistically, the Red Cross responds to a house fire in the United States about every eight minutes,” Chapman said. “When you think about that, it’s pretty local.”
In fact, the Red Cross has responded to several house fires in Burnet County over the past year. The volunteers arrive to offer blankets and help with prescriptions and other immediate needs.

“It’s really about helping your neighbors,” Chapman said.
The problem is the Burnet County area only has two Red Cross volunteers — Chapman is one of them — who quickly respond to local emergencies. Chapman said more volunteers would be a great help.

The Highland Lakes Amateur Radio Club is hosting a meeting with the American Red Cross on at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30, at the Westside Park Community Center, 1704 Second St. in Marble Falls. The event is open to anyone interested in learning about the American Red Cross and emergency preparedness.

Ham radio opportunities will also be discussed.
