American Red Cross talks ‘Home Fire Preparedness Campaign’

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The American Red Cross wants to teach middle Georgia how to survive in case of a fire emergency at their homes with its ‘Home Fire Preparedness Campaign’.

American Red Cross workers will partner with local fire departments to visit door-to-door across the country to educate the community about fire safety and install smoke alarms.

Representatives plan to visit the Centerville community this Saturday, July 18 to install smoke alarms.

The organization offers a couple tips for everyone: check existing smoke alarms and practice fire drills at home.

Several tips to increase your chances of survival:

  • Install a smoke alarm at every level of your home.
  • Test your alarms. If they don’t work, replace them. 
  • Make sure every family member knows how to get out each room of the house in less than two minutes. 
  • Practice your escape plan.
