The group is always ready to assist law enforcement agencies during emergencies.

REACT’s cumulative efforts result in the saving of many lives annually, through the greater speed with which medical aid reaches an accident scene and better communications provided in time of natural disasters.

The local team is also involved in community service through handling communications for a variety of charitable activities such as the Cancer Bike-A-Thon, Fourth of July Safety Break, April Sorensen Marathon, Big Island Rendezvous, Eddie Cochran Car Cruise, etc.

If you are interested in volunteer service call 826-3185 or send a self-addressed stamped envelope to: P.O. Box 305, Albert Lea, MN 56007.
