Red Cross Gearing Up for Disaster Drill Taking Place on Saturday

Staff Report
NewsWest 9

The Red Cross is gearing up for a national disaster to hit Midland on Saturday.

But don't worry; it's all pretend.

On Saturday, 700 Red Cross volunteers from across the state and even Oklahoma will be practicing drills.

It's all to see how they will react in case of a real-life disaster, like a tornado for instance.

You might even see them in your neighborhood.

Stakes will be planted in the ground to give volunteers an idea of how bad the damage is.

The drills should begin around 9:30 a.m.
