Slideshow: Lions Club gets disaster trailer

Dick Welch, spokesperson for the Benton Lions Club, said the ALERT program in District 7L has acquired a disaster trailer that will serve the Interstate 30 corridor between Bryant and Texarkana.

"All of this was made possible through the generous support of Everett Buick GMC," Welch said.

The project began approximately two months ago with the request for quotes on trailers and on the graphics.

Welch said the trailer is outfitted with emergency supplies not made available by the Red Cross and will provide a quick way to get to the site of a disaster.
