American Red Cross volunteers learn about setting up a shelter during an emergency training session on Monday at C.W. Stanford Middle School.

HILLSBOROUGH — Ten American Red Cross volunteers walked across the gym floor at C.W. Stanford Middle School, opened the back door and opened the small van stocked with the various items they would need to convert the large room into an emergency shelter.
Stocked with 80 cots, blankets, a generator, first-aid kits, extension cords, toilet paper, registration forms and other items, the van had been towed from its usual resting place in a Hillsborough parking lot. After carrying some of the containers inside, the volunteers pored over the contents that would help shelter residents literally weather a storm or other local disaster.
