DreamWeek San Antonio 2018 - Home Fire Campaign Installation Event

The American Red Cross is excited to participate in DreamWeek San Antonio on Saturday, January 13th, 2018. Across our region we have hosted multiple Home Fire Campaign events to install free smoke alarms in homes that need them most. In order to make this event a success, we need YOU to join us and volunteer. You don’t need prior Red Cross experience to participate, as you will receive training on the day of the event.

You will receive a confirmation email with more information on meeting locations and shift schedules closer to the date of the event.

Thank you for your support, we look forward to serving alongside you!

For questions, please contact Jordan Cline, Jordan.Cline2@redcross.org

Training and resources will be given for each role on the team. Below are the descriptions for each role.

Educator: While the smoke alarm is being installed, the educator teaches the family how to work the alarm, helps them create a fire escape plan, and shares fire safety tips as well as any other disaster preparedness tips for hazards in their area (e.g. floods).

Installer: The installer works with the team to actually install and drill the smoke alarm(s) into the appropriate areas.

Documenter/Team Lead: The documenter/team lead works with the family to fill out the necessary paperwork, holds information about the installation event and details regarding the homes to visit, helps the installer if needed, and ensures the family has everything they need.
