Many people know the American Red Cross supports first responders on the scene of a fire. Our volunteers – in addition to helping the families displaced by the incident – also provide drinks and snacks to the hardworking men and women on the scene to put out the blaze.
In addition to working with first responders at the scene of a fire, our volunteers support them during other emergencies as well.
Last night, our volunteers supported nearly 100 first responders who were searching for a Rhodhiss man who has been missing for two days. Volunteers handed out drinks and snacks during the search.
While operations like this one can be difficult, it’s important for the Red Cross to be there, supporting the people who are serving our community.
