The Evacuation Centers need physician and medical personnel assistance!
Veteran’s Building: Peggy Goebel, NP, Red Cross Coordinator for all docs and RNs at Veterans and Santa Rosa fairgrounds.
Peggy is the Santa Rosa contact for volunteers. Please call her directly at: 707-292-5680
Peggy says, “We have about 1300 - 1400 patients with 500-600 at the Vet and about 750 at the SAnta Rosa fairgrounds. We have everything from diabetes to COPD to wounds to Alzheimer’s to hospice. You name it, we’ve got it. Lots of respiratory patients and mental health needs. We need shifts around the clock. We have Red Cross do 12 hour shifts and that’s what we prefer. It just makes continuity easier. “
They also need donations of nebulizers
