• Local Red Cross needs translators/interpreters

If you are fluent in a foreign language, as well as English, the American Red Cross would like you to consider offering your bi-lingual writing and speaking skills as a volunteer translator/interpreter. Areas of service include opportunities as presenter of community disaster education programs, disaster relief emergency shelter staffing, disaster action team member responding to local disasters such as house and apartment fires, mental health counselors and registered nurses (must be licensed and certified) and health and safety course instructors. The greatest need for the Snohomish County Chapter is for bilingual translators speaking Spanish, Russian, Ukrainian, Korean, Tagalog, Vietnamese, Lao, Cambodian, or Arabic. Volunteer time commitments would be “as needed” and compatible with availability of the individual. If interested, call Diana Schmid, 425-740-2327 or e-mail schmidd@snohomishcounty.redcross.org.
