RRT Redwood Falls Search & Rescue Event

On Sunday night, September 15th, a teenage boy from Redwood Falls, Minnesota, area was swept into flood waters and disappeared. The search and rescue teams immediately responded to the call, continuing the search through the night but the rushing flood waters created very difficult circumstances. At 6:00 a.m. a new rescue team arrived on site to relieve them.

That morning the Redwood Falls Chief of Police contacted Rapid Relief Team to inquire about a meal for the tired and hungry search and rescue workers. RRT jumped into action and with the use of one of RRT's Mobile Support Units prepared a hot lunch of burgers.

RRT and the Government Shutdown

The Rapid Relief Team (RRT) has started a national campaign to provide free meals to furloughed Federal Transport Security Administration (TSA) agents right across the United States.

RRT will be providing thousands of hot meals to TSA employees at dozens of major airports across the country, many of whom are serving their fellow citizens by working without pay as a result of the recent partial government shutdown. 

Over 4,000 free meals in total will be served by RRT volunteers over the course of the next week at major airports including Philadelphia, Newark, San Antonio, Columbus, Omaha, North Dakota, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Oakland, Des Moines, Detroit, Portland, and Cleveland.

RRT Los Angeles Responds To California Wildfires

Rapid Relief Team from Los Angeles supported the firefighters and other emergency responders, in what turned out to be most deadliest and most destructive wildfire ever recorded in the state of California. What started as a small campfire in the nearby mountains, destroyed over 100,000 acres and 6700 homes and other buildings. The fire jumped the main 101 freeway and headed from the hills to the pacific coast, destroying anything in it's path. It was stated that the wildfire grew at a pace of 40 football fields every 30 seconds, and firefighters responded that they focused on helping with the mandatory evacuation and only confronted the fire when it was safe to do so. Many people fleeing their homes found themselves completely surrounded by flames. The damage was so extensive, entire developments were left looking like a war zone. The Rapid Relief Team provided refreshments and cold beverages to the firefighters, as well as served meals from a safe distance.
