Every year, on or about the day set aside to honor Martin Luther King Jr., Red Crossers fan out through communities in the Eastern Massachusetts region to talk about fire safety and prevention.
That work is getting an award.
The partnership has received an honorable mention for the 2013 FEMA Individual and Community Preparedness Awards.
This project takes place every year on or around MLK Day, and last year over 50 cities across the country participated. Our partner in the project, HOPE worldwide, is instrumental in helping us deliver appropriate fire safety information to those most at risk for home fires – in English and in Spanish.
