The American Red Cross, of which Owen County is a part of, is seeking volunteers with flexible schedules to respond in events in Owen County.
Red Cross Disaster Action Team (DAT) volunteers respond to assist families with shelter, support and access to basic needs immediately following a house fire, flooding and severe weather, often arriving on scene even as the fire is still burning.
The Owen County Red Cross has three DAT volunteers at present time.
