Request for assistance from Gloucestershire Parishes and Communities

Emergency Management Service (EMS) Gloucestershire County Council, Cheltenham Borough,
Cotswold District, Forest of Dean District, Gloucester City, Tewkesbury Borough Councils are
requesting assistance and support from parish and community groups throughout Gloucestershire.

EMS has asked British Red Cross (BRC) to set up a co-ordination team to support the response to
swine flu. The role of volunteers would be to act as flu friends and collect antiviral from the antiviral
collection point and deliver through letter box of people in need of antiviral. There may be other
support roles which BRC would discuss with any groups or individual that volunteer to help.

Parishes or community groups please contact Sandra Howitt showitt@redcross.org.uk

For individuals who wish to volunteer not as part of a group wagflurota@redcross.org.uk
