Red Cross Celebrates the “Heroes” of Southern Nevada


Every day ordinary people are making extraordinary contributions to their community. From firefighters and law enforcement professionals to medical personnel and everyday citizens, these individuals go above and beyond the call of duty to help those in need. Whether by providing life saving CPR, helping neighbors during fires and floods, or by supporting humanitarian efforts around the world, we salute those who help when help is needed most. The Southern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross is proud to once again honor these citizens at the 9th Annual “Everyday Heroes Awards”.
