In Longview teams spread out across the city to get practical experience in assessing needs and helping people during a natural disaster.
Two teams of red cross volunteers fanned out in Longview neighborhoods to test their response abilities in the event of a tornado. Going to flagged areas, they assessed mock damage and the immediate needs of victims, such as clothing , meals and shelter.
For the teams, its a chance to practice their emergency response skills , as if it were the real thing. Red cross communications were assisted in the exercise by members of the Longview East Texas amateur radio club and Longview police.
