Home Fire Safety Campaign

Home fires, annually kill nearly 2,500 people and injure another 13,000. YOU can do something about this. Own the goal of the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign. WHAT is the goal? Over the next five years reduce the number of fire deaths and injuries in the U.S. by 25 percent. How? Community canvassing with some specific, very empowering, goals: • Motivate ordinary people to take action by checking smoke alarms and practicing home evacuation when an alarm goes off. • Meet with families in their homes to complete a home safety checklist, and help them to develop a fire escape plan. • Install smoke alarms and replace batteries in existing alarms. Take a bite out of that 25 percent national goal by targeting low income, elderly, disabled and youth populations here in our neck of the woods.

We are currently focusing on the Lakewood neighborhoods, since they have the highest number of home fires. After you sign up we will provide the exact locations for each Saturday event just prior to the event. We will be working in teams of three individuals. Orientation for any new volunteers would be from 9am to 10am and project will follow from 10am to 12pm.
