Call for emergency volunteers
PERTHSHIRE residents are being encouraged to sign up as emergency volunteers for the British Red Cross this year.
The organisation relies on reserve teams in local incidents to help with basic t asks i ncluding staffing shelters.
Perth and North Perthshire MP Pete Wishar t said: “When flooding occurred here previously, the community was quick to rally round. The British Red Cross have formalised this with their scheme and I’d encourage people to sign up.
“People are only ever contacted i n an emergency local to them and are expected to help with the most basic of tasks, but these can really help.”
PERTH and Kinross C o u n c i l ’s c o m m u n i t y alarm team has been honoured by the Technology Enabled Care Services Association for meeting its quality standards framework.
