The Rotary Club of Davenport is partnering with the American Red Cross and the Davenport Fire Department to distribute educational materials for fire prevention and safety and emergency procedures in the home.
Rotary volunteers will work in conjunction with Red Cross volunteers and the Fire Department this Saturday,  April 13 from 9 am to noon to hand out materials in three Davenport neighborhoods. Volunteers will meet at a designated spot to park and then the Red Cross will provide vehicles and volunteers to transport everyone around the community.
Davenport Rotarian Eloise Graham is coordinating the project with two other Davenport Rotarians, Betsy Pratt, CEO of the American Red Cross of the Quad Cities Area, and Davenport Fire Chief Lynn Washburn.  The Rotary club has been collecting funds that the Red Cross uses to provide supplies to families that have experienced a fire. Through this new partnership project, we hope to prevent those tragedies by providing information about fire safety to Davenport residents.
“Fire safety is an important part of the mission of the American Red Cross of the Quad Cities Area. We’re honored that the Davenport Rotary has chosen this project that can help us save lives in our community,” said Betsy Pratt.
Additional volunteers are needed, and they do not need to be Rotary members.  To volunteer, contact Eloise Graham at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it , or call 563-359-8696.
