Sean Uyeda is a Red Cross Disaster Action Team (DAT) captain, one of the many critical Red Cross volunteers who answers the call for help 24/7 when disasters large and small strike. Most of these disasters are home fires - in fact, the Red Cross responds to nearly 66,000 disasters every year in the U.S., and most of those are home fires.
