The American Red Cross Disaster Cycle Services (DCS) launched the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign (HFPC) in October 2014. Its goal is to reduce the rate of deaths and injuries due to home fires by 25 percent over 5 years. Its strategy includes participating in a community coalition that targets neighborhoods at-risk for home fires; installs and tests smoke alarms; and provides fire safety and disaster preparedness education/planning.

This position exists primarily to notify residents in the neighborhoods targeted for an upcoming smoke alarm installation event and to leave a door hanger with rally notification and fire safety information at each home visited.


  • Notify residents in the neighborhoods targeted for installation of the upcoming installation rally in their area.
  • Leave a pre-event canvassing door hanger with rally information and fire safety information at each home visited.
  • Follow all guidelines, training, safety and documentation requirements for this task.
  • Provide reporting and evaluation feedback for continuous improvement purposes.

Time Commitment/Availability: 5-10 hours per weekend. Flexible scheduling.
