  • Red Cross helps Rockford family displaced by fire

The Red Cross is stepping in to help a Rockford family that was forced from their home after a fire Thursday night. "We will have more than 400 home fires in North and South Dakota this year; we see them every year and majority happen between October and March".

As times seem to get tougher and the weather gets colder, different groups in our area need different types of help. Turner said she never thought it would cause an uproar.

"Home fires affect hundreds of families in our region each year, and especially after November's fire on Remsen Street, the importance of working smoke alarms can not be overstated", said Josh Moskowitz, disaster preparedness manager for the Eastern New York region of the American Red Cross.

She also noted that free training is provided for volunteers.

The American Red Cross and Ouachita Parish Fire Department also provides smoke alarms at no charge. They would love to have volunteers from each of their counties for this.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies almost half of the nation's blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides global humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.
