The American Red Cross Western Washington Chapters is looking for everyday people who have performed extraordinary deeds in the region. Do you know someone who used CPR to save a life, pulled a person from a burning building or went above and beyond to help someone in need?
Starting this October and finishing this spring, the Red Cross will present awards to local heroes who saved lives, exemplified the Red Cross mission or made significant, positive differences in the community in the areas of emergency response, preparedness and prevention. Past recipients include police officers, firefighters, members of the Armed Forces, teachers, children/youth and pets.
Help the Red Cross recognize these extraordinary people by nominating a hero. Nomination information and forms are available online or by calling 206.726.3543 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The nominee must be a resident of or employed within Western Washington, or the heroic act must have occurred within Western Washington. Nominations are being accepted on an ongoing basis.
