Lafayette Red Cross volunteer heading to Washington mudslide

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A Lafayette man is flying to Washington state Wednesday morning to help out with relief efforts.

Red Cross volunteer and retired firefighter Dave Fagan will be serving as a Community Partner Service Manager to help mudslide victims get back on their feet.

It’s been ten days since the natural disaster hit. He said relief workers need to be relieved themselves.

“People are exhausted. The managers are exhausted. So, it’s more of a change out of managers because everybody is tired. There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done even for this small area,” said Fagan.

The Red Cross has told Fagan he will be out in Washington for up to three weeks.

It’s his 30th trip as a Red Cross volunteer since 2005 and his first mudslide.
