Safety tips also offered as fires threaten

WASHINGTON, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Red Cross is on the scene offering evacuees a safe place to stay as wildfires in California force people from their homes and scorch thousands of acres. Overnight, nearly 200 people took refuge from the smoke and fire in Red Cross shelters.

"If you are ordered to leave your home, please do it immediately," said Joe Becker, Red Cross senior vice president for disaster services, "These wildfires can be very dangerous. You will find a safe place to stay, a warm meal, and a shoulder to lean on at your community's shelters."

Those affected by the fires can register on the Red Cross Safe and Well web site, an easy way to notify loved ones of their well-being. People can either place the call themselves, or have someone do it for them. Registration can be done by visiting www.redcross.org or by calling 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767). Friends and family can then search for their message by using their phone number or address.

Red Cross offers the following safety tips to keep those in the vicinity of the fires prepared and safe:

  • If advised to evacuate, do so immediately.
  • Follow the instructions of local officials.
  • Back the car into the garage or park it in an open space facing the direction of escape. Shut the vehicle doors and windows and leave the keys in the ignition. Close the garage windows and doors, but leave them unlocked. Disconn
