Red Cross Community Education Volunteers Needed for Saturday, May 8

Home fires claim seven lives every day, but you can help change that. This spring, American Red Cross volunteers will Sound the Alarm in at-risk communities by educating 100,000 people nationwide about home fire safety. We'll help families create an escape plan to practice their 2-minute drill. To help keep everyone safe, we'll meet with families outside of their homes and follow social distancing guidelines. Join us to prepare your community against home fires. We'll provide all the training you'll need. Whether it's rain or shine, this fire safety education will be held on May 8th, 2021.

All participants will be required to:

  • Complete Covid-19 screening questions in advance of activity
  • Self-monitor temperature & have temperature taken at start of shift
  • Cover: Masks must be worn at all times and will be provided
  • Distance: Social distancing, allowing six feet between each participant or client at all times
