From sheltering dozens of residents displaced by recent Broome County fires, teaching preparedness and responding to disasters to educating babysitters, the Southern Tier Chapter of the American Red Cross is always ready.Speaking on the March 9th edition of the Southern Tier Close Up public affairs program, local Community Chapter Executive, Shelley Bierwiler talked about the diverse programs and services and the invaluable work of dozens of volunteers in the area.

Bierwiler says the Red Cross is also looking to honor local heroes in May and provide local companies and groups chances become heroes, too by raising money for the Red Cross.

Local heroes who have been responsible for saving a life, even animal heroes, will be honored at the 4th Annual Real Heroes Breakfast May 9th.

More information about the Red Cross can be found on line at or by calling the local chapter at (607) 785-7207.

Southern Tier Close Up can be heard Saturdays at 12:10 p.m. on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
