Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees across the nation are donating one percent of their sales during the month of October to their local American Red Cross Chapter to help fund disaster relief efforts
Online PR News – 03-November-2010 – – The Cincinnati Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard is proud to observe National Fire Safety Month in October by joining the American Red Cross Chapter in raising funds for their local disaster relief effort.
Fire is the biggest disaster threat to families and the number one disaster relief effort by the American Red Cross. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, over 17,000 home fires are caused by clothes dryers in the US each year.
During National Fire Safety Month the American Red Cross is encouraging residents to take steps to minimize the risk of home fires by remembering two key fire safety steps: install smoke alarms and develop a fire escape plan. The Cincinnati Dryer Vent Cleaning Wizard adds, “Dryer vent cleaning is the number one way to prevent dryer fires.”
“Fires can strike suddenly and spread quickly,” according to a representative of the local Red Cross chapter. “It’s important that people take simple and inexpensive steps now, such as installing a smoke alarm inside bedrooms, outside sleeping areas and on every level of their homes. They should also create a plan of escape in case they need to leave at a moment’s notice, because during a fire every second counts and being prepared can greatly reduce the affects of these devastating disasters.”
Ed Rauch is happy to make a difference by donating one percent of his sales during the month of October to the local American Red Cross chapter in support of disaster response efforts. “The American Red Cross does an excellent job helping families who have lost their home to fire,” said Rauch. “I’m happy to help this worthy cause.”
