Chester Progressive, Westwood PinePress Wednesday, April 8, 2009 11A Basin woman responds to North Dakota disasl:=_r M. Kate West Chester Editor chesternews@plumasnews.com Almanor Basin Red Cross volunteer Linda White has been deployed, as a result of the Red River flooding, to as- sist .in staffing emergency evacuation shelters in North Dakota. The Three Rivers Chapter called her March 22, accord- ing to disaster director Charles McCaul. White flew out of Sacramento March 24, and will be de- ployed to North Dakota for two weeks. "White has undergone training with the Red Cross and has skills in managing and staffing shelters," said McCaul. "She is also the lead Red Cross disaster volunteer in the Lake Almanor Basin." McCaul said the Three Rivers Chapter has been seeking to build the capacity of the volunteers in the eight counties it serves. He said this task has been a priority since the Butte County fires last summer. 'There are more than 35 positions needed to be filled in a major disaster. The Red Cross and other emergency responders are very con- cerned about the upcoming dry summer and are actively seeking volunteers in Plumas County," said Mc- Caul. Classes are planned in Plumas County to train local volunteers in-sheltering skills, as well as other key roles. "The psychological first aid course, which teaches volunteers how to recognize and respond to victims of disaster needing emotional support, will be offered in Chester April 25," he said. To register for the class or find out more about how you can become a Red Cross vol- unteer, call 891-0885 and ask for Charles McCaul or e-mail disasterdir@sbcglobal.net. He said a disaster assis- tance course is also in progress now at Feather Riv- er College. To register or for more information about the college class, contact Tama B01ton at 283-0202, ext. 285.

On a scale of one to 10, it was a 10," said Alliance for Workforce.Development Business Service Coordinator Janelle Hardig April 1. Asked about the preparedness of the 102 job seekers, Hardig said, "1 think every- one understands how hard things are with the economy and they took this em ployment opportunity very seriously." Employer turnout was good, and Hardig thought some of the employers might have felt bombarded by the sheer number of job seekers. She also said there were a lot of youth present at the fair. "It was terrific to see so many youth, all dressed up and with resumes in hand," she added.
