Red Cross Home Fire Campaign Mobilizing

The Red Cross of Northeast PA is planning an IMMEDIATE MOBILIZATION of our Home Fire Campaign for this Saturday, Jan. 21 in the Birchwood Area of Exeter in response to the fatal fire that occurred there last night. The Red Cross would love to have the support of Wilkes University.

Volunteers will meet at our Wilkes-Barre office (256 N. Sherman Ave.) at 1 p.m. 
Everything will be supplied – equipment, supplies, training, transportation, etc. We need help on our Field Teams and Mobile & Support Teams. We'll have plenty for everybody to do. There are almost 200 homes in that community and we’re determined that they ALL have working smoke alarms so none of them ever suffer a loss such as today.

If any students, faculty, staff, etc. can join us, that would be great.  You DO NOT need to be a Red Cross volunteer for this day.  Anyone interested in helping should RSVP to ​Ned Bloom ​(Ned.Bloom@redcross.org) or just show up.
