Disaster volunteers spoke with those affected to ensure that their immediate needs were met.

Volunteers with the Hawaii Red Cross responded to the Kaneohe home fire that occurred on Sunday.  Red Cross disaster volunteers spoke with those affected to ensure that their immediate emergency needs for food, shelter and clothing were met and will provide referrals, guidance or additional assistance, as needed, to help with the recovery process.

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 redcross.org/hawaii, or a brochure can be requested by calling 734-2101 or your local Red Cross office.

The Red Cross is a non-profit humanitarian organization which provides assistance to meet the immediate emergency needs of those affected by disasters. All Red Cross assistance to disaster victims is free. The Red Cross is not a government agency; it depends on public contributions to help others. 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 American Red Cross, 4155 Diamond Head Road, Honolulu, Hawaii  96816 or make a secure online donation at redcross.org/hawaii or call (808) 739-8109.
