Red Cross trains Spanish speakers to aid with relief

Related Story

BATON ROUGE- The Red Cross is working to break the language barrier during emergencies.

Today, several Spanish speaking volunteers learned how to set up, run, and close a relief shelter.

The volunteers told News 2 they're ready to put their training to work.

Reverend Carlos Rosales says, "Our community, the Hispanic community, has grown so much. And I believe that there are many that don't speak the language. And they need help on where to go what to do. Where to go. In case of a tragedy."

To find out when the next Red Cross class starts in your area go to redcross.org.
