The Red Cross is sending out a plea for help as we head into what's expected to be a busy fall disaster season. 

Preparations are being made for what's already an active hurricane and wildfire season across the country.

Covid-19 is making it more challenging for the Red Cross to deploy trained volunteers. They are looking for more people who are willing to both deploy to disaster areas and remain closer to home to help with relief needed locally.

The Red Cross also has an immediate need for licensed medical professionals. Anyone interested in volunteering can learn more here
