Someone dies in a home fire seven times a day, on average nationwide, and in Northeast Ohio, the Red Cross responds on average to three home fires every day. Join us, when, in honor of Flag Day, we partner with several military and veterans groups on a mission to make neighborhoods safer throughout Northeast Ohio.
We will be going door-to-door in Parma, Akron, Canton and Mansfield, installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms, and conveying valuable fire safety information on June 17, 2017 from 9:00am- 2:00 pm.
Interested individuals can register to volunteer for the event via the Red Cross of Northeast Ohio “events” page at http://www.redcross.org/news/event/local/ohio/northeast/Operation-Save-A-Life-Military-and-Veteran-Partners-Fire-Safety-Walk.
The actual registration page will list times and locations as well.
