The Charitable Foundation’s grant will support the American Red Cross’ “Home Fire Preparedness Campaign”, a program that allows Red Cross staff to canvass at-risk populations (i.e.: seniors, youth) and install fire alarms in residences, complete home safety checklists, help families develop escape plans and, ultimately, reduce the number of fire deaths and injuries throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley.
