ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY - First Alert Nation (FAN) is a non profit news service dedicated to keeping our subscribers safe via news alerts. Anne Arundel First Alert, the creator of FAN, will be going a step further and will now be helping our subscribers AFTER THE FIRE.

Anyone who has ever lost their home to a fire will tell you, the next 24 hours is the hardest. Groups like the American Red Cross do an amazing job of finding shelter and supplying some goods. But it's the items you normally forget. Like toiletries, candy, individual prepackaged pain relievers, and water. Plus other essentials to include female needs.

That's where FAN comes in!

Thanks to some of the BEST subscribers in Anne Arundel County, we are raising funds to supply these essential items to our community in their time of need. Through your generous donations, FAN will put together "Go-Bags" specifically made for a Man, Woman, Girl and/or Boy, using the items listed above. We even have one for pets (limited to dog/cat).

Each bag cost around $8 per bag and will be specific for each person as reported above.

We understand these "Go-Bags" won't change the events that just took place. But our hope is, it will make their next 24 hours a little more bearable. Because when the news is all bad, you have to make your own GOOD NEWS!

THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH!
