Did you know…. that the American Red Cross responds to more than 63,000 fires each year? that 65% of home fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or with smoke alarms that don’t work? that last year, fire killed more Americans than all natural disasters combined?
The American Red Cross helps people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies. As a proud member of the Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet, and as someone who has personally been affected by a home fire, I’d like to encourage everyone to check out these Red Cross Fire Prevention Safety Tips in recognition of October as National Fire Prevention month.
