Desde 2018, la Cruz Roja se enorgullece en llevar a cabo nuestra campaña “Activa tu Alarma Salva una Vida”., instalando alarmas de humo en vecindarios en toda la región.

Los incendios domésticos continúan siendo el desastre más frecuente durante el COVID-19, y la Cruz Roja mantiene su compromiso a seguir creando conciencia para prevenir los incendios domésticos e informar a las personas cómo pueden protegerse ellos, y a sus familias. Es por eso que estamos organizando un “Prepare-a-thon” a través de una experiencia virtual, para hacer nuestros hogares más seguros.

El “Prepare-a-thon” de la Cruz Roja es un desafío de un mes, que comienza el 8 de abril…¡y necesitamos tu ayuda!

Durante el “Prepare-a-thon”, los voluntarios buscarán educar y preparar a las personas a través de sus redes sobre seguridad y prevención contra incendios en el hogar. Habrá premios para aquellos voluntarios que eduquen a la mayor cantidad de personas.

Los voluntarios recibirán la capacitación necesaria y el material necesario sobre la prevención contra incendios en el hogar para luego, poder compartir la información de manera rápida, en 10 minutos por teléfono o virtualmente por Facetime, Zoom, etc. Los voluntarios pueden brindar la educación cuando les sea más conveniente durante el mes que dure el desafío.

Los participantes pueden registrarse individualmente o en equipo. Para más información dirigirse a: www.redcross.org/ctsoundthealarm or  www.redcross.org/risoundthealarm
