For the 4th year Roanoke Fire-EMS is teaming up with the American Red Cross, Hope Worldwide and the Roanoke Police Department to “Take it to the Streets for Fire Safety”. This is an event to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and an opportunity to share fire and life safety with people in the community as well as crime prevention tips. Starting at noon on Monday, January 19, 2015, volunteers will canvass door-to-door throughout the Roanoke neighborhood near Station 5 on Orange Avenue. The volunteers will talk with residents and leave behind smoke alarm batteries and door hangers with fire safety information. The door hangers include information about smoke alarms, creating a household fire escape plan and tips for cooking and heating a home safely this winter. The Roanoke Police Department will share some crime prevention information as well.
