A neighborhood recovers after blast levels house; 24 homes without heat">
I was devastated to learn about the fire, but so relieved to learn that the family is ok. Believe it or not, I got the word from the Deputy Director of Emergency Management for our city. Since my husband and I are certified volunteers to be used in case of an emergency (like a fire, a tornado, a hurrican, the flu .. just to name a few) we will be called for duty, someday. And since we are on the notification list, we both got notified about the same time today.
The Red Cross always comes through for people in need, but with today's economy, will the Red Cross some day NOT be able to help? That thought kinda scares me.
