Playoffs Fever!

The Cubs/
cross-town rivalry is
in full force, and we’re joining in at the Red Cross by asking our chapter staff to come dressed in their best Cubs or Sox garb on Friday to show their spirit!
While some of us at the Red Cross are loyal to our north or south side team, when it comes to disasters, we don’t take sides. Over 90% of our disaster response is to home fires, and that covers the north side, the south side and everywhere in between.

Speaking of home fires, we want to remind you that October is fire safety month. While you’re reveling in the excitement of the playoffs and preparing for your own Cubs or Sox party this weekend, take a minute to do a fire safety check in your home. We promise you won’t regret it.

You can find helpful fire safety tips on the Get Prepared section of our website.
