John Weaver Red CrossOn Wednesday morning, March 4, 2020, the Forum met at the Red Cross Lehigh Valley-Bucks Chapter in Cetronia for a building tour and presentation from local chapter volunteer John Weaver, a national expert on disaster mental health services. We had a catered breakfast served in their commercial truck bay area, followed by a presentation in their large training room. John showed us their process and capabilities for disaster relief.
