There are occasions when a particular disaster, like a tornado, may create a need for emergency shelters in the community. To that extent, free training is being offered early next month regarding opening and managing a shelter when an emergency strikes.

What's called “shelter fundamental tips and tools” will be offered to any interested persons the night of June 2nd at the Trenton fire station. It'll begin at 6 o'clock and conclude by 9:30. Make registrations with Kelli Hillerman at the Grundy County Health Department. (359 4196) The American Red Cross provides an instructor for the training. Persons attending will be able to use information given during a “capstone exercise” coming up June 19th.

A shelter is to be set up. If there are enough volunteers, persons will be divided into two groups for practice in the operations of a local emergency shelter.

At a meeting held this week in Trenton, Glen Briggs was named chairman and Rick Morris the vice chairman of the Local Emergency Planning Committee.

Katie Briggs was approved as mass care and volunteer coordinator for Grundy County. It also was reported SEMA (state emergency management agency) was in Trenton May 16th to view damage from the May 10th hail that fell.
