Oahu Volunteers Respond to Fire in Honolulu

User News Image
Red Cross provided assistance with food and groceries.

American Red Cross volunteers responded to the Honolulu home fire that occured on Saturday and affected four individuals.  Red Cross disaster volunteers met with the affected residents to ensure that their immediate emergency needs such as shelter, food and clothing, were met and provided assistance with food and groceries.  Caseworkers will continue to follow up with the family to ensure their immediate needs are met, and to provide referrals to assist with their disaster recovery.

The Red Cross encourages all families to make a disaster plan to include an evacuation plan with two different routes of escape, a communications plan to help families reconnect after disaster and a disaster supplies kit that is readily available to aid in a quick evacuation.  Information on developing a family plan is available to the public at, or a brochure can be requested by calling 734-2101.  

The Red Cross is not a government agency and depends on public contributions to help others. All Red Cross assistance to disaster victims is free. Your gift supports the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross in your community, across the country and around the world.  To send a contribution, mail your check to:
