Did you know that the majority of the disasters the Red Cross responds to are home fires? Home Fires cause serious harm, including fatalities, to families in local communities, like ours; but thankfully the Red Cross is taking action to help prevent home fire disasters and provide relief to those who are suffering. The Red Cross has launched its first-ever signature event,Sound the Alarm, to reduce the death and injuries caused by home fires. In Kentucky alone, we havealready saves 44 lives from this incredible neighbor helping neighbor campaign.
I have personally joined the Sound the Alarm campaign to support smoke alarm installations in my community. I am asking that you help join my efforts to help save lives. A gift of any size helps the Red Cross prepare, respond and help those affected recover from a traumatic disaster. For example, $15 will cover the cost of fire safety training and the installation of one smoke alarm.
