The Heart of Tennessee Chapter of the American Red Cross has named Kathy Ferrell as its new executive director.
When asked what her first priorities would be, Ferrell told NewsRadio WGNS . . .
The local Red Cross trains volunteers to help with local disasters, both weather related, fires along with those caused by unforseen forces. Obviously, citizens help the local chapter by volunteering to help with blood drives, CPR and first aid classes. In addition, the Red Cross is in charge of communications between family members and military when personal crisis issues arise. And obviously, volunteers help with office and administrative functions.
The Heart of Tennessee Chapter is located at 501 Memorial Boulevard, and their phone number is 615-893-4272.
