FIRED UP TO HELP
U.S. Army Reserve firefighters have group support
Even Superman needs a hand every once in a while.
The families of the U.S. Army Reserve Firefighting unit in Creston now have one more resource available to them in times of need. At the end of April, Tiffany Berndt started the Creston Army Reserve Firefighter Family Readiness Group (FRG), a group that focuses on giving support and finding resources for the families of soldiers who are away from home or deployed.
“Being a Reserves wife, it’s more difficult than being an active duty wife,” said Berndt. “You have all your friends right there (on base). Army Reserves, everyone is so spread out. So, if something happened and I need help, I can’t just go knock on my neighbor’s door. In Reserves, some don’t have a base or have ever been on an active duty base before, so it helps to find programs to help families going through hardships. And, sometimes, you don’t have that support that you need.”
