Fires this past weekend

This past weekend was a busy one for the Red Cross and their Disaster Action Team (DAT) here in Chicago. There were a total of 53 individuals, including adults and children affected by home fires in the Cook County area. Since they just lost their homes, we made sure they had a place to stay and food to eat. On a normal day, the Chicago Red Cross responds to three or four home fires. The Red Cross is always looking for new people to help them respond to fires. Visit the Chicago Red Cross website to find out how you can be there to lend a hand to families whose lives have been forever changed because of a fire in their home.
