RRT Bound Brook Fire Relief Efforts

The Rapid Relief Team was called to a massive 7-Alarm Fire in Bound Brook, NJ late Sunday evening. A new apartment complex was up in flames and spreading quickly! Within two hours, RRT was on site with a large supply of food and beverages to feed an estimated 300-400 Firemen, EMS and Police Officers, who were need of a break from their shift.

RRT served a hot meal, to first responders until 3am Monday morning, leaving the leftovers with Central Fire Command to help them power through the early morning hours. The support from RRT was very much appreciated by the emergency personnel, many who had traveled in from surrounding townships and cities and were joining forces to bring the fire under control and make it safe for nearby residences!

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.

RRT teamed up with Inspirica in Stamford CT today, to provide holiday meals for less fortunate families this Holiday. Having the fifth highest housing costs in the nation, homelessness is impacting many families. Inspirica seeks to break the cycle of homelessness by providing the programs and services that help their clients achieve and maintain permanent housing and stability in their lives. RRT volunteers gladly took this opportunity to give these families a fresh sense of hope and some holiday cheer!

Food Insecurity is a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. It is very real for millions of families. This Holiday Season, RRT has committed to making a difference for less fortunate families, who otherwise would go without a proper Holiday meal.

On December 24, RRT Teams across North America will be distributing totes including a full traditional holiday meal, designed to feed a family of six. RRT estimates this Holiday Event will feed around 6,000 hungry people this Holiday Season!
