Who is a Hero? There are heroes all around us. They may be people you know - family members, friends, coworkers - or perhaps strangers whose good deeds you read about in the newspaper or heard about on the evening news.
A hero can be someone who bravely acts in a time of immediate need or someone who simply lives his or her life in a way that shows they care for those around them. Heroes are ordinary people whose actions demonstrate the potential that is in all of us. If someone is a hero in your eyes, we encourage you to nominate them.
The American Red Cross of Alaska invites you to nominate a hero for one of the following categories: Adult Good Samaritan, Animal Rescue, Aviation Rescue, Community Safety, Educator, Family Hero, Fire Rescue, Law Enforcement, Marine Rescue, Medical Rescue, Military Rescue, Wilderness Rescue, Workplace Safety, Youth Good Samaritan.
