Claudia survived a devastating hurricane only to face another one thirteen years later, but this time with her six children. As Claudia prepared, she knew she didn’t want to take any chances this time around. She packed a few belongings and brought her children to a Red Cross shelter for refuge during landfall. Once she arrived, she said, “It’s good here. We are safe.”
This #GivingTuesday, help us ensure families have a safe place to go during a disaster by donating to support emergency shelters. http://rdcrss.org/shelter
Claudia sobrevivió a un devastador huracán solo para enfrentarse a otro trece años después, pero esta vez con sus seis hijos. Mientras Claudia se preparaba, sabía que esta vez no quería correr riesgos. Empacó algunas pertenencias y llevó a sus hijos a un refugio de la Cruz Roja para que los protegieran durante la llegada. Cuando llegó, dijo: "Aqui está bien. Estamos seguros."

Every eight minutes, the American Red Cross responds to a disaster in the U.S. – the vast majority of which are home fires.

Cada ocho minutos, la Cruz Roja responde a un desastre en los EE. UU., la gran mayoría de los cuales son incendios domésticos. Y, trágicamente, siete personas mueren cada día en incendios domésticos, la mayoría en hogares que carecen de detectores de humo que funcionen. Los calentadores pueden iniciar incendios en el hogar si no se usan correctamente. Este invierno, siga los consejos de seguridad de la Cruz Roja y proteja su vida y la de sus seres queridos.
