Blood Drive/Open House 








April 25th-28th saw one  the largest tornado outbreaks in US history, with 62 tornadoes occurring around Alabama and over 2,200 injuries and 248 deaths as a result.

In an article published six months after April 27th, al.com reporter Mark McCarter wrote, “It's impossible to lavish too much praise on the area's firs...
t responders and their actions six months ago today. Lives were saved. Chaos was kept at a minimum. Helping hands were loaned. Absurdly long, sleepless hours were worked. Major sacrifices were made. Firefighters, EMTs, police officers and other emergency personnel, all unselfish, all trained to react in disaster situations, but still stunned to see the devastation.”

Members of MVFR provided 2,378 man-hours from April 27, 2011 to May 7, 2011. These hours included search, rescue, recovery, clean up and cooking, serving, and delivering food. Three years later, the events of April 27th and the weeks afterward are still fresh in the hearts and minds of all who lived in communities affected by the tornadoes. When thinking of that time, one thing many remember is the sense of togetherness created by the recovery efforts. In remembrance of all the lives affected by the tornadoes and resulting devastation, Monrovia Volunteer Fire-Rescue asks that you join us on Saturday, April 26, 2014 for a blood drive and open house in honor of the third anniversary of the events on April 27, 2011 and after. The American Red Cross’s Blood Mobile will be at the fire station from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. with hamburgers and hot dogs being served from noon until 2 p.m.
