"In New Carlisle, a family of six came home to discover that there home was completely burned out. They lost everything they owned, even the family dog, but they were safe and able to start over again. The American Red Cross sent caseworkers to the scene to assist the family, providing services and referrals that will allow this family to begin their recovery.
The American Red Cross doesn’t just respond to fires, we help families prepare to save their own lives as well. As part of our Home Fire Campaign, we install smoke alarms freeof charge in homes across the county. We teach families about how quickly evacuation needs to be and we make sure they know the way out."
