Home Fire Preparedness Volunteer - Lake City Area

Save to Favorites

American Red Cross - North Florida Region

Seven times a day, someone in this country dies in a home fire. The American Red Cross has launched
a nationwide campaign to reduce this number and our volunteers can help save lives and prevent injuries.

There are many ways you can be involved:

  • Go door-to door and speak with residents about the importance of smoke alarms and promote the free smoke alarm installation service.
  • Organize canvassing events and help residents develop a fire escape plan and complete a fire-safety checklist.
  • Install smoke alarms and teach residents how to test and maintain their smoke alarms.

Mission Statement

The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors.

Description

Every single day, the American Red Cross helps people in emergencies. Whether itメs one displaced family, thousands of disaster victims, or providing care and comfort to an ill or injured service member or veteran or support to a military family member, our vital work is made possible by people like you. It is through the time and care of ordinary people that we can do extraordinary things.

Due to COVID-19, we at the American Red Cross are delivering our mission a bit differently these days. Nearly all of our work is being done virtually when possible. After you complete the volunteer application at RedCross.org/Volunteer, a regional representative will reach out to speak to you about specific opportunities in your area and how you can help.
