Each week during November we've spotlighted the men and women on the frontlines - the dedicated team members who don't hesitate to go above and beyond their job descriptions. We are thankful not only for these team members mentioned below, but also for our entire FedEx family - in every corner of the world.
On August 4, 2009, Louisville, Ky., posted new records for the city, but not ones anyone was striving to achieve. On that day, the city and surrounding areas were drenched with record-setting rain fall, flooding homes, cars and public buildings.Without an ark to rescue them, more than 500 dogs, cats and other animals at Metro Animal Services, were evacuated to drier grounds of the Kentucky Fair and Exposition. Sadly, 11 animals died when the facility was flooded.
