The Madison County Health Department continues to encourage local residents to prepare for disasters of both the natural and man-made variety.  The agency is putting out another call for volunteers to step up and get trained to respond to a disaster, and are looking for a variety of skills.

Amy Yeager, Health Promotion Manager, tells The Big Z they have a solid base of volunteers, but are always looking to ad more.
