ARC OF CENTRAL TEXAS RESPONDS TO TWO FIRES

Your American Red Cross of Central Texas responded to two fires this weekend. A fire destroyed a family home in the early morning hours on Saturday, May 15th. The Red Cross provided shelter and other essentials for the couple who had lost their home.

On Sunday, May 16, your Red Cross responded to a massive hotel fire that left 5 people displaced. Smoke from the destroyed building could be seen for miles in both directions on I-35. Twelve volunteers and our Emergency Response Vehicle (the ERV) were deployed shortly after the fire started. They provided food and drink to the eighty or so firefighters who responded to the fire. In addition, the Red Cross had Mental Health volunteers in case anyone needed to talk to someone about the day’s events.  

A great thank you and kudos to our wonderful Disaster Action Team volunteers!!!
