The American Red Cross Disaster Cycle Services (DCS) launched the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign (HFPC) in October 2014. Its goal is to reduce the rate of deaths and injuries due to home fires by 25 over five years. Its strategy includes participating in a community coalition that targets neighborhoods at risk for home fires; installs and tests smoke alarms; and provides fire safety and disaster preparedness education/planning. This position exists primarily to establish (within a designated area) teams, meetings, routes, communication protocol, training, reporting and closeout on the day of the event.
