The American Red Cross of Southern Arizona is calling for volunteers to assist us in installing free smoke alarms in the Flowing Wells, Homer Davis Neighborhood on Saturday, April 16th, 2016.

We are reaching out to you to see if you are interested in organizing a team of volunteers to come out and help this community. There will be fun incentives for the team with the most volunteers!

This neighborhood has been identified by our national preparedness division as at high risk for home fire related injuries and fatalities. Nationally, seven times a day, someone dies in a home fire. Every 40 minutes, an injury from a fire is reported. Nearly 1,000 times every day, fire departments are called to home fires. The American Red Cross is addressing the issue directly through our Home Fire Preparedness Campaign aimed at reducing fatality and injury due to house fires by 25% over the next 4 years or by 2019.

This video gives compelling reason why all of us should prepare ourselves and our families with a plan:

Feel free to contact Tiffani Wilkison with questions. or   (520) 495-1025 (o)  |  (520) 392-4253 (c).  We expect to have media interest in the event.  Details are still unfolding and we are excited to include you in our plans.

Thank you for your support of this critical program, and pass this along to all your contacts.  We are in desperate need of support – looking at needing 120 volunteers.  I am contacting you because you may know someone who could use community hours, or are part of an organization who is an active supportive member of the community and involved in volunteerism.
