Local Red Cross Chapter responds to help apartment fire victims in Westfield

The Southwestern NY American Red Cross Disaster Action Team responded to provide disaster relief following an apartment fire in Westfield on Saturday.

DAT volunteer Sue Shearer was on scene to provide the initial disaster assistance.

Temporary 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 Northern and Southern Chautauqua County also provide financial support to the local Red Cross mission.
