The local chapter has responded to three house fires during the past week and Director Chad Conrad says the most active months for residential fires haven’t even started.
Conrad says it’s important for families to take the time to prepare before a fire strikes by checking smoke detectors.
Conrad also recommends creating an evacuation plan.
And if disaster should strike, Conrad says the Red Cross will always be there to assist the victims.
In addition to financial contributions, Conrad says individuals can also help by becoming a chapter volunteer.
