"Dr. King recognized the power of volunteer service to strengthen communities and achieve common goals," said Antonio Boyd, HOPE worldwide Vice President -- U.S. Programs. "This partnership with the Red Cross will help strengthen communities by giving people the information they need to prevent home fires and protect their loved ones."

During the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service and throughout the weekend, canvassers in 25 cities, from California to New York, will be talking with people about ways to heat and cook safely, the value of smoke alarms and the need to create and practice a household fire escape plan. Fire safety and prevention door hangers in English and in Spanish will be provided to all homes visited by volunteers, and left for neighbors who are not at home.

"We are encouraging people to take the simple steps necessary to help protect their families and homes from fire," says Scott Conner, Senior Vice President, Preparedness and Health and Safety Services for the American Red Cross. "Fires can affect anyone, regardless of their background or geographic location, but many can be prevented. We are thrilled to partner with HOPE worldwide on this important opportunity to educate and empower Americans."
