SLFD a Red Cross disaster shelterPublished 5:47pm Tuesday, March 26, 2013
Sister Lakes Fire Department partnered with the American Red Cross and is now a Red Cross disaster shelter. With a building of more than 7,000 square feet, a 440 three-phase, 200-kilowatt generator, a 1,500-gallon-per-minute well and a commercial kitchen, SLFD is capable of handling the Red Cross when it comes in after a disaster to supply food, cots, blankets or whatever else the community needs at no additional cost. Call (269) 208-0391 if interested in becoming trained as a Red Cross disaster operator.
The only request to the community the Red Cross has, and it is NOT a requirement, is if there is anyone in the community who would want to be trained as a Red Cross disaster operator, it would be interested in hearing from you.
For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (269) 208-0391.
SLFD has a long history and tradition of supporting and protecting the Sister Lakes community in time of need.
Usually they are called into action after a tragedy occurs.
Now SLFD is preparing to be there before disaster strikes.
The next time winds begin to blow or snow falls and the community is without power for a week at a time, rest assured the Red Cross disaster center will be there if you need a hot meal, warm shower, fresh water, power to charge your electronics or a placed to lay your head for the night.
