Know a thing or two about home fire safety?

Looking to make a difference in your community? Share your fire safety smarts as a Team Firestopper volunteer!

4 out of 5 Americans are unaware that home fires are the most common disaster threat. You can help us change that statistic. Teach households in the Chicagoland area how to prevent fires in their home by:

  • Maintaining smoke detectors
  • Creating a home fire escape plan
  • Learning how to use a fire extinguisher
  • Practicing safe home heating methods
  • Assembling a disaster supply kit
Join forces with us; help us to eradicate home fires in Chicagoland communities!

We have volunteer opportunities available in March, April, May and June! To volunteer, visit us www.chicagoredcross.org/tfs, or call 312-729-6179 for more information. Don’t worry, we will train you!

Fire safety tip of the week: Always check the kitchen before going to bed or leaving the home to make sure all stoves, ovens, and small appliances are turned off.

Fire safety tips are brought to you by Team Firestopper! We’re working to stop fires before they start in your community! For more information or fire tips, visit www.chicagoredcross.org/tfs or www.redcross.org/homefires!
