I hope this message finds you well and in good spirits! I am reaching out to share information regarding the American Red Cross’s initiative to introduce the Homes Made Safer program. This program has been designed
to help prevent home fires from occurring and keep people safer against home fires through the education. The American Red Cross is providing free one-on-one home fire safety education to any individuals or families interested! In our 15-minute education session, individuals will learn home fire prevention tips, the importance of smoke alarms and fire extinguisher and how to design a home fire escape plan.
Due to Covid-19, for safety purposes, sessions will be over the phone or a video conferencing platform such as Zoom. On average 36 people suffer injuries as a result of home fires every day, and the most impacted are children, people with disabilities and the elderly. Knowing how to prevent home fires and how to get out of the home quickly and safely, can save a life and can help you save your loved ones.
Our hope is to reach as many people as possible, but we can’t do that without your help. Attached at the bottom is a flyer as well as a link that has our information on it. If you could please share this information with the members of your community, we can all become more resilient to home fires. If interested, or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. My email is [email protected].
Stay safe, look forward to hearing from you!
