What Qualifies Someone as an Everyday Hero?
Everyday Heroes are nominated by their peers to be recognized for going above and beyond in service to others. An Everyday Hero is someone who has made a difference in any of the following categories: Animal Rescue, Education, Fire & Rescue, Good Samaritan (youth), Good Samaritan (adult), Health Care, Law Enforcement, Military, Professional Responder, Volunteer Community Impact, or Workplace Safety. Nominees must live or work in the area served by the Tri-States Chapter of the American Red Cross. An independent selection committee reviews each nomination and determines the honorees each year. Nominations for the 2016 program will be accepted beginning April 1, 2015.
