CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The need for volunteers across New Hampshire and Vermont is critical, Red Cross officials said, so they’re holding a “disaster bootcamp” in the North Country this month.

The session is scheduled for April 29-30 in Gorham, New Hampshire.

The bootcamp is a fast track training opportunity for individuals interested in becoming an American Red Cross disaster responder. It’s a day-and-a-half-long training session and gives an opportunity for current disaster responders to brush up on their skills.

The application deadline is April 27.

Red Cross officials said in the New Hampshire and Vermont region, the organization deploys volunteers to respond to disasters that displace families, on average, every 20 hours.



“While pockets of dedicated volunteers continue to support the people in their territories around our two states, more hands are needed for the work that the Red Cross does here in New Hampshire and Vermont,” the organization said in a news release.
