Join us on Saturday, November 12 for a special Home Fire Campaign event in the City of Schenectady. During this one-day event, the Red Cross is joining forces with local first responders, community groups and corporate supporters to prepare local households for the most common disaster in our region – home fires. Together, we’ll provide lifesaving fire safety education to hundreds of people as we work to install at least 250 FREE smoke alarms for local families in just one day.
We need your support to make this event a success! Volunteer to help us install smoke alarms, complete fire safety checklists and create personalized fire escape plans with local families. Your participation at this event truly has the power to save lives!
