Flood season is a long way off, but the city of Davenport is looking for volunteers to be leaders in future flood-fighting efforts.
The city is seeking 40 to 50 people to become a part of a flood fight coordinator team. Training will be held Thursday, with sessions from 8-10 a.m. or 6-8 p.m. at Davenport Public Works Center, 1200 E. 46th St., Davenport.

Volunteers must be 18 or older, able to attend two to four hours of training annually, make a three-year commitment and work in a team environment with diverse populations and ages.
