The City of Mineola and the American Red Cross are preparing to reach out to residents of south Texas in the event of a hurricane evacuation.

The Red Cross is looking for local volunteers to provide comfort to those who need it most.

“The volunteers are needed to help with hurricane evacuees for shelter operations,” said Mineola Fire Chief David Madsen. “Also with the restructuring of the Red Cross they are wanting to get more involved with individual counties and they need local volunteers to help run their response vehicles and help local fire departments during wildfires and things like that.”

An informational meeting will be held Thursday at 7 p.m. at Mineola City Hall for anyone interested in volunteering during a hurricane event or local disaster. Community groups, churches and businesses are all invited to attend. The 2012 Hurricane evacuation plan and all volunteer opportunities available will be discussed at the meeting.

The Red Cross acknowledges the citizens of Mineola and Wood County who have “stepped up” several times before to help in times of disaster.
