American Red Cross of Rhode Island WHAT IS YOUR VOLUNTEER ROLE AT THE RHODE ISLAND RED CROSS?

I am an emergency services dispatcher, which means if a fire occurs in the evening or over the weekend, and the Red Cross is needed to assist victims, I am the person that gets the call and activates the volunteers to respond to the scene.


American Red Cross of Rhode Island ESTIMATED NUMBER OF FIRES YOU HAVE RESPONDED AS A VOLUNTEER?

I have dispatched over 20 fires this year.


American Red Cross of Rhode Island WHY DID YOU BECOME A RED CROSS VOLUNTEER?

I have always volunteered with hospitals and other organizations. I am a mother of two children and the idea of a mother and her children standing out in the cold because their house is on fire is just heartbreaking to me. When my daughter became involved in the Red Cross and I found out that I could help fire victims who have no where else to go, I started volunteering.


American Red Cross of Rhode Island ARE YOU INVOLVED IN ANY OTHER COMMUNITY GROUPS/ACTIVITIES?

North Kingstown Woman's Association and Senior Center, Rocky Hill Grange Flea Market.


American Red Cross of Rhode Island WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT BEING A VOLUNTEER?

Knowing that the result of my actions: dispatching a volunteer to a fire scene, will result in someone getting the help they need.


American Red Cross of Rhode Island DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE STORY ABOUT YOUR VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE?

Yes, one of the things the Red Cross does that many people don't know about is that we connect Rhode Island families to their family members who are members of the armed services serving around the world in the event of a birth, death or other emergency. I actually took a call from a family member and was able to facilitate the soldier being brought home.


American Red Cross of Rhode Island WHY SHOULD OTHER PEOPLE IN YOUR COMMUNIY BECOME RED CROSS VOLUNTEERS?

Because there is a shortage of volunteers and there are many needs that have to be filled every day at the Red Cross.
