Red Cross provides fire safety education to help Hawaii’s families

Sponsored by Texaco in Hawaii

Home fires claim lives every single day, and we can all do our part to help change that. The Red Cross and Island Energy are sounding the alarm to help educate the community and keep families safe.

There are two important things the community can do to keep their families safe. First, practice a two-minute fire drill to plan your escape routes at least twice a year. Everyone in your home should know two ways to escape from each room in your home. Second, test your smoke alarms monthly. Also, if you have smoke alarms that are more than 10 years old, it is time to get a new alarm because the sensor will get less sensitive over time.

The partnership between Island Energy and Red Cross began more than 5 years ago. This year, Island Energy increased its support for the organization in 2020 to renew its commitment to helping the Red Cross achieve its humanitarian mission of helping those in need and facing emergency situations.

There are many synergies between Island Energy’s company values and the mission of the Red Cross. The Red Cross is always there for those facing emergencies so that Hawaii’s communities are ready and prepared for disasters, such as home firesand hurricanes. This strong focus on safety and preparedness of both organizations makes this partnership a natural fit.
