American Red Cross

American Red Cross

March is American Red Cross Month.
Utahn Tina Spencer has been a volunteer with the American Red Cross for just over a year. During that time she has deployed four times to assist victims of major disasters. 

She has been to New York to help Superstorm Sandy victims three times.  She's also been to Louisiana after Hurricane Isaac.  Tina has also deployed several times during last summer's wildfires across the state.

Tina is deploying again to New York on March 6th.

Teresa Zundel says the American Red Cross depends on volunteers like Tina.

The Red Cross also just unveiled a "Tornado App".  It offers:

  • · Proactive alerts-siren sounds even when app is not open. Know when you and/or loved ones are in harm's way.
  • · Monitor locations where your loved ones live
  • · One-touch Red Cross shelter finder
  • · One-touch "I'm Safe" messaging
  • · Safety and preparedness information
  • · Digital family preparedness template that can be completed and shared online
