TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The Capital Area Chapter of the American Red Cross is getting an army of volunteers ready to help out with Hurricane Irma.

Several classes were held Saturday to show people how to handle the severe weather heading toward them. Volunteers learned about topics like damage assessment and shelter fundamentals. These are skills the volunteers can use to help their neighbors and local communities before, during, and after a storm hits.
