Martha’s Vineyard disaster relief organizations will carry out a shelter drill to test their ability to coordinate emergency efforts in the event of a hurricane or other disaster. The drill takes place at the Tisbury School from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, and is the first of its kind for the Island.

The American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Medical Reserve Corps, emergency management personnel and the Boy Scouts will participate, along with the Island’s new Disaster Animal Rescue Team.

For more information, contact Jim Thomas of the American Red Cross at 703-407-1207.
