Red Cross Purchases New Disaster Trailer for Local Chapter

Thanks to a generous grant received from last year’s request to the Middle Tennessee Gas Utility District “Project Hometown Help”, the Warren County Chapter of the American Red Cross was able to purchase a new Disaster Trailer.

“This trailer is a huge asset to our Chapter and will help us to respond effectively to disasters in all 4 of the counties we serve including DeKalb, Van Buren, Warren and White Counties,” said Kathy Nesmith, Executive Director of the Warren County Chapter. “This trailer will be a key component and play a critical role in supplying relief shelters to our citizens when they need them most,” she added.

The trailer can be readily transported to a central shelter location. Its contents will be able to equip the shelter for up to 25 persons who have been forced from their homes in the wake of a disaster or emergency. Soon after it was purchased, the trailer was used to transport cots and to set up a temporary shelter for emergency workers following the February 29th tornado in DeKalb County.
