Red Cross offering free training for rural volunteers

Thanks to a new a grant, the Inland Northwest chapter of the Red Cross will be providing free disaster response training for those wishing to volunteer in rural areas.


The Red Cross will be hosting training sessions in Whitman, Pend Oreille, Bonner, Stevens, and Ferry counties between now and June 1st.
