CHICAGO (CBS) — The Red Cross says last Sunday’s tornadoes illustrate how disasters can devastate communities, but it says the biggest threat to Chicago area families isn’t severe weather, but fires.
With that in mind, its trying to help prevent them in a neighborhood that has more than any other in the city.
WBBM’s Mike Krauser reports volunteers with the Red Cross shared fire safety tips with Englewood residents at the field house in Ogden Park at 65th and Racine.
“Englewood is an area where we do have lots of fire response. That is one of the things we do at the Red Cross is respond to home fires,” said Red Cross CEO Fran Edwardson.
