About

Purpose:

The American Red Cross Disaster Cycle Services (DCS) is launching 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 percent over 5 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 ensure that the number of smoke alarms and batteries installed and other services provided are recorded and reported within program parameters and that the resident client completes and signs required documents (acknowledgment, releases, etc.); and transfers completed documents to the event neighborhood captain or designee. This position should also hold ladder or step stool safely for the installer, as needed. It is part of a smoke alarm home visit team.

Key Responsibilities:

* As part of home visit team, visit homes at-risk for home fires and helps ensure that the number of smoke alarms and batteries installed and other services provided are recorded and reported within program parameters
* Ensure that the resident client completes and signs required documents (acknowledgment, releases, etc.) and transfers completed documents to the event neighborhood captain or designee.
* Hold ladder or step stool safely for the installer, as needed.
* Follow all guidelines, training, safety and documentation requirements for this task.
* Provide reporting and evaluation feedback for continuous improvement purposes.
