Disaster recovery workshops offered in Ill. towns


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Workshops in two Illinois communities hit by tornados last fall will help community leaders learn how to lead recovery efforts.


The "Disaster Recovery Tools Workshop" is offered by Church World Service, its member denominations and the American Red Cross.


It will be March 19 in at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Gifford in Champaign County and March 21 at Brookport First Baptist Church in Brookport, in Massac County. Tornados in both towns in November destroyed dozens of homes and killed four in Brookport.


The workshops are for community leaders who want to help survivors rebuild their homes and lives. They will give an overview of how to form a long-term recovery group, disaster management, volunteer and construction management and more.


Advance registration by March 14 is recommended but not required.
