Editor's note: Vera Zlidar is a researcher and writer for Johns Hopkins Population Reports. She is volunteering with the Central Maryland chapter of the Red Cross for three weeks in the Gulf Coast region. Tuesday, Sept. 27, from Biloxi, Miss.: I've been "on duty" in the shelter for about 24 hours now. Where do I start? On the one hand, I feel like it's really slow because there aren't very many residents here. On the other hand, already I've seen amazing people and heard amazing stories.

Red Cross thanks volunteer responders As the volunteer chair of the Central Maryland Chapter of the American Red Cross, it is my privilege to work with many dedicated volunteers. National Fire Prevention Week ended on Oct. 11, making it an appropriate time to publicly express my appreciation for those volunteers who assist with local disaster response. Many people don't realize that when the local fire department responds to a home fire, the Red Cross also answers the call. Our unsung heroes are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, often leaving behind friends, loved ones and warm beds in the middle of the night to meet with those affected by disaster.
