As a community leader in emergency preparedness and response, the American Red Cross is proud to present Hero Awards to local individuals who have acted courageously in a time of emergency. Often at great risk to their own personal safety and well-being, these ordinary individuals have acted in a heroic manner by reaching out to help others in times of greatest need. Due to their courage, tragedies were averted and lives were saved.
What better way to celebrate the Red Cross spirit of humanitarianism than by honoring those individuals who have shown courage, coolness and kindness during a time of emergency?
Do You Know a Hero?
Do you know a passerby who jumped into a frozen lake to pull a drowning child to safety? A neighbor who administered CPR to a total stranger? A dog that alerted its family to a fire?
The Stark & Muskingum Lakes Chapter is honoring community heroes of Stark, Tuscarawas, Carroll and Harrison Counties who have acted courageously and selflessly in a time of emergency during the 2018 calendar year. The hero nominations will be presented to a judge’s panel and the heroes will be selected in February 2019.
If you know of a hero, we need your help in identifying them. Please share their story by completing the nomination form on or before January 31, 2019.
