more about what the American Red Cross does, and
how they might be able to volunteer, are urged to
take the American Red Cross’ new on-line introductory
training course entitled Introduction
to Disaster Services (ARC 3066).

course that introduces the public to some of the
important services that Red Cross volunteers perform

how you might volunteer and help in the aftermath
of Hurricane Katrina. If you are interested in additional

Armonk Lions’ Fol de Rol
Members of the North Castle Citizens’ Corps Council
(NC4) covered a booth at the Lions’ Annual Fol de
Rol held in Armonk last June. The Disaster
Relief Vehicle (DRV) was also at the booth so that
community residents could become familiar with it.
NC4 appreciates the support of the
Armonk Lions for a booth, and their assistance in
educating the community about the importance of
disaster preparedness for local residents.
volunteers displayed a considerable variety of helpful
literature addressing disaster relief preparedness
as well as essential phone numbers on a magnetic
“refrigerator” card. The pamphlets on emergency
preparedness were made available through NC4’s partner,
the American Red Cross.
Members were available to answer questions and
to recruit new volunteers from the community.
