Red Cross to canvass on fire prevention: Volunteers from the Gateway Area Chapter of the American Red Cross and Ashford University Service Learning Students will be going door-to-door from 3-5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 3, in the Clinton area, talking to people about how to prevent home fires and how to escape safely should a fire occur.

Volunteers will canvass door-to-door, talk with residents and leave behind 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.

For more information, contact Amber Wood or Jolene Carpenter at 563-242-5223.
