Changes in store for area Red Cross offices

Posted by wlpo on September 1, 2011

The people you would call after calling 9-1-1 during a disaster or fire are making some changes to the area they serve.  The Red Cross office in Peru will soon be responsible for disaster response in all of La Salle County.  As it stands, Streator has an office and the Ottawa area is covered by the Bloomington office.

Sarah Stasik is the executive director of the Peru office.  She says the change happens Saturday.  She says it will be more work in the first few years but she believes they’ll be able to handle it and pick up more volunteers.

With the closing of the Streator office, a part-time employee will be loosing their job.
