Bernie Sebold - Alton Fire ChiefWith the closing of the American Red Cross office in Alton, the Alton Fire Chief says they are making arrangements to make sure victims of fires still have access to needed services in the aftermath of a blaze.  Single-family house fires is what keeps the Red Cross busiest, but now Bernie Sebold says they will be relying on another local agency to fill the void.

Sebold says the Red Cross decision to close the Alton office is very disappointing, but feels the Fire Department will be able to continue to offer “full service” to anyone displaced by a fire with this new emphasis on utilizing the Salvation Army.
