Home fires are the greatest and most common threat

 of disaster in our communities.


The good news is that they are preventable and steps should be taken to protect home and family from fires. 


Preparedness is the best defense.


Steps in both prevention and preparedness in the case of a fire are key.  Smoke alarms, disaster planning and home fire escape plans are a way to start preparing your family in the case of the unthinkable.

"I Survived a House Fire. . .I Wish My Stuff Had"


Author, Candace Quinn has released her personal story "I Survived a House Fire. . .I Wish My Stuff Had" outlining her experiences following the loss of her home and belongings.  This easy to use guide offers personal experience, safety tips and preparedness steps for everyone.





(This is Ms. Quinn’s first work outside of healthcare where she is a consultant, author and speaker.  She is a former resident of Longmeadow, MA; and former member of the American Red Cross Pioneer Valley Chapter board of directors.  Ms. Quinn is donating a portion of royalties from the book to the American Red Cross Pioneer Valley Chapter and to the National Fire Protection Agency.)
