Do you know a hero who has made a difference in your community?

Each year, the American Red Cross honors community members who have demonstrated heroism through extraordinary acts of courage and humanitarian service.

Meet the 2017 Heroes!

Who should be considered?
  • The hero must live, work, go to school in, or the event must have happened occurred in the Long Beach, Rio Hondo, or South Bay area.
  • The heroic act must have occurred outside of the normal course and scope of the hero’s usual and customary work.
  • The heroic event must be a single incident and not part of a disaster or catastrophic event response.
Examples of heroic acts are performing CPR or First Aid, rescuing someone from drowning, performing a water rescue, providing outstanding humanitarian service for Veterans or the Armed Forces, and helping prepare the community for disaster.


Deadline to nominate is January 31, 2018.
