To the Florida Highway Patrol & Lieutenant Kevin Blom,

As American Red Cross volunteer’s we worked with Lt. Kevin Blom, Shift Commander, Jacksonville Regional Communications Center, in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi during September of 2005. Specifically, we worked at a Red Cross financial assistance service center. People from this devastated community and surrounding area came to our location to become qualified to receive immediate financial relief from Red Cross. Given the severity of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina our service center was extremely busy. Very large crowds of people (thousands per day) would come to our service center seeking financial assistance. Lt. Blom and the troopers under his command provided outstanding support to Red Cross operations. This support included traffic control and crowd control; providing general information and directions to the public. The presents and professionalism of Lt. Blom and his troopers helped us establish a service center that was orderly, efficient and safe.

Lt. Blom himself communicated closely with the Red Cross staff to adjust the necessary trooper resources, communicate with the public and demonstrate compassion while establishing a sense of order in very difficult circumstances.

We commend him for his outstanding community and public service!

Thank you Kevin for a job exceptionally well done.
