As a community leader in emergency preparedness and response, the American Red Cross annually presents the Firelands Hero Awards to those residents of Erie and Huron Counties who have acted courageously and selflessly in a time of emergency. Often at great risk and sacrifice to their own personal safety, comfort, and well-being, these ordinary individuals have acted in a heroic manner by reaching out to help others in times of greatest need.
The concept for the Firelands Hero Awards grew out of a desire to develop a special event that is closely related to the humanitarian mission of the American Red Cross.
What better way to celebrate this spirit of humanitarianism than by honoring those individuals who have shown courage, kindness and unselfish character by their acts of heroism.
Because their actions embody the ideals, principles and purpose of the Red Cross to prepare for and respond to emergencies, the selected 2012 heroes will be honored during a special breakfast ceremony on Saturday, March 23, 2013 beginning at 9:00.
Please join us and become a part of this uplifting, rewarding and unforgettable event.
