American Red Cross volunteers will be on North Mesa June 12 to help promote fire safety.
At that event, Red Cross volunteers and volunteers from the Vecinos program of Los Alamos National Laboratory will be offering free smoke alarms, map escape routes and will be sharing fire prevention tips.
The volunteer work is being done in Tsikimu Village, partially in response to the fire that destroyed a home in the area last month.
“When fire breaks out in your home, you have about two minutes to get out to safety,” said Scott Keyes, American Red Cross community preparedness and resilience manager for the Arizona, New Mexico and El Paso Region. “A working smoke alarm and an escape plan are critical. The Red Cross is committed to getting working smoke alarms into people’s homes, and helping them think
through an escape plan for all family members.”
Those wanting to participate can also have their home alarms checked to ensure they are in proper working order.
Along with smoke detector checks, volunteers will also share fire safety information with residents, such as cooking and heating tips and the need to create and practice a fire escape plan.
The program is part of the American Red Cross Home Fire Preparedness campaign which
kicked off in October 2014.
