The Southwestern NY American Red Cross Disaster Action Team (DAT) responded to provide disaster relief following a house fire on Peterson Street in Jamestown on December 9th. DAT volunteer Pete Peterson was on scene to provide the initial disaster assistance. Housing, clothing, and meals are services typically offered to address emergency needs. The local Red Cross chapter will continue working with the families and their recovery process if additional services or referrals are necessary.
All disaster assistance offered by the American Red Cross is complimentary and made possible by generous contributions from the American people and residents of Chautauqua County. The United Way organizations of Chautauqua County also provide financial support to the local Red Cross mission.
