The Red Cross of Northeast Ohio Region provides emergency and recovery relief for victims of single home fires, floods, tornados and other man-made and natural disasters — 24-hours a day, 365 days-a-year.
The Red Cross has launched an initiative that aims to reduce deaths and injuries caused by home fires by 25% in five years with Operation Save-A-Life. We ask every household in America to join us in taking two simple steps that can save lives: checking or installing smoke alarms and practicing fire drills at home.
When we aren’t responding to disasters, we are helping people get ready for them. During disasters, vital resources will likely be unavailable, so preparing ahead of time allows you to minimize the effects of disasters and speed up the recovery process.
