Abstract: Every 1.8 days a fire takes a life in North Carolina. In the larger picture of disaster responses, a normal residential fire is considered an emergency, an every day event. To the people that live in the home it is a dire disaster as they have lost property, shelter, and in some cases life. First responders do an outstanding job of taking care of these people/families with putting out the fire and tending to their immediate injuries, but that is where their help and expertise ends. It is at this point that American Red Cross offers support with their "After the Fire" program.
