AMERICAN RED CROSS
Beginning on Monday, March 12, the Red Cross will move to the VA Center in Tafuna across from ANZ Bank and will continue to reach out to the households with major damage or destroyed homes to set up appointments throughout the week.
In addition to the disaster casework services, the American Red Cross started installing smoke alarms today as a part of the Red Cross’ Sound the Alarm smoke alarm installation program.
Working with the local fire authorities, the Red Cross is identifying the areas with the highest risk for home fires, installing smoke alarms and creating emergency escape plans with family members — you may only have two minutes or less to get out of a burning home and practicing your escape plans makes that easier to do.
