Home fires kill more people in an average year than all domestic natural disasters combined. That’s why The American Red Cross wants to ensure your family knows what to do to stay safe.
The American Red Cross responds to an average of nearly 66,000 disasters each year. The majority of these are home fires. You can change that by following 2 simple steps. Step 1: Practice your 2 minute drill. Make sure you and your family can escape a home fire in under 2 minutes. Step 2: Test your smoke alarm monthly to ensure that you and your family are alerted as soon as a fire is detected.
With your donation, the American Red Cross can continue to help those affected by disaster, including home fires, by providing temporary housing, hot meals, financial and emotional support.
