A day in the life of AmeriCorps member Abby Walthall at the Red Cross
The Red Cross Home Fire Campaign is a national outreach effort launched in 2014 to install free, lifesaving smoke alarms in homes that need them throughout the United States. Red Crossers in the Northwest reached an ambitious regional goal of installing 4,000 alarms from July 2015 to June 2016.
As summer progresses, so does the momentum around our Home Fire Campaign and I am ecstatic to be a part of it. In particular, I find myself thriving in the event-planning aspect, where I’ve coordinated with both Red Cross staff and several local fire departments. I’m expecting to finish seven events and then start in a new area: individual install appointments.
