GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The American Red Cross is looking for residents of Ionia and Barry counties who want to help pay it forward.

The organization wants disaster service volunteers, and there will be a start-up class tonight from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at the Grand Rapids chapter on Fuller Avenue, and this class is the first step in the training process.

The Red Cross calls on these volunteers to respond to natural as well as man-made disasters such as fires, hurricanes, floods, hazardous material spills and transportation accidents.

Anyone interested in getting involved needs to register for the class, complete an orientation and have a background check on file before attending the start-up class.

To register, visit the American Red Cross website for West Michigan.

    I would like to add that in case you do not currently have an insurance policy otherwise
    you do not take part in any group insurance, you could
    possibly well really benefit from seeking the aid
    of a health insurance professional. Self-employed
    or people having medical conditions commonly seek the help of the health insurance brokerage.
    Thanks for your short article.
