There was a fire at a house in Portland on Oct.11, 2008. Because, the single adult could not stay in his house, the Red Cross was called. When the Red Cross volunteers arrived they helped the individual with the following:
–Three nights lodging at a nearby motel.
–A client assistance card to get food.
On Oct. 11, 2008 Red Cross volunteers supported a search and rescue operation at Triple Falls on E. Columbia River Hwy. The Red Cross volunteers provided Self Heating Meals to support the first responders who were retrieving a body of a hiker.
