The American Red Cross responds to approximately 300 fires in Maine each year, providing financial assistance for food, clothing, and emergency shelter. The region has ramped up our prevention efforts, and is taking our fire safety message to the cities and towns of the Pine Tree State. Teams of volunteers are going door-to-door in targeted neighborhoods, meeting with residents, sharing fire safety tips, and installing free smoke alarms where needed.
The fire safety campaign relies on the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, who come from businesses, schools, community groups, and more. These individuals and teams help spread the fire safety message, and help keep our communities safe.
