The American Red Cross hosted the agencies at a luncheon in Edinburg.
“We're all first responders, so we have the honor of working with these particular organizations like the Border Patrol, DPS and sheriff's department. And when they respond to any sort of disaster, we're right there alongside them,” Anna Putegnat with the American Red Cross said.
Putegnat said her chapter of the Red Cross covers Hidalgo, Willacy, Starr and Cameron counties.
She said the Red Cross often provides food and shelter for disaster victims in these areas.
