The Fond du Lac Fire Department and the Fond du Lac Firefighter Local 400 sponsored their 8th annual brat fry to benefit disaster services provided by the local American Red Cross Chapter in Northeast Wisconsin.  At every disaster the Red Cross is there, providing basic needs including food, shelter, emotional support and comfort kits at no cost for those affected by the disaster. The Red Cross also supports emergency response workers by providing food and beverages at the scene of the disaster.

Fond du Lac Fire Department Brat Fry to Support the Red Cross

The City of Fond du Lac Fire Department will be hosting their annual Brat Fry on April 29, 2011 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with all proceeds going to the Red Cross. 

The Red Cross relies on this brat fry to provide funding toward their mission of assisting the Fond du Lac community in times of need. This event is the largest fundraising effort the Red Cross is involved with throughout the year and the Fond du Lac Fire Department is proud to be associated with this cause.

Home fires are the most common disaster that the Red Cross responds to and also the most preventable.  Families need to take a few simple precautions to avoid tragedies, such as having working smoke alarms on every level of their homes and having family fire escape plans in place to help get everyone out of the house safely.

The Red Cross provides assistance not only to the families involved in fires and other tragedies, but also assists the City of Fond du Lac Fire Department by providing food and beverages to firefighters at emergency scenes.

The American Red Cross, through volunteers, helps prepare communities for emergencies and keep people safe every day thanks to caring people who support them.
