BRIEF: OC American Red Cross seeks Bravo for Bravery nominees

The American Red Cross of Orange County is seeking local heroes to honor for their extraordinary acts in the community.

The organization is hosting the Bravo for Bravery Awards, a ceremony that helps to recognize everyday and normal citizens for their achievements. Businesses and locals are encouraged to nominate any person who displayed acts of courage during an emergency.

Such nominees include individuals who have performed CPR, first responders, medical personnel, or anyone in law enforcement. Animals that have also performed heroic acts are also able to be nominated. Deadline for the nominations are May 14.

The nominations will be reviewed at the 8th Annual Bravo for Bravery Breakfast on Thursday, June 2, in the Marconi Automotive Museum in Tustin.
