Mobile Meals of Toledo and the American Red Cross are partnering to ensure that Mobile Meals’ clients are safe in their homes. A Red Cross volunteer accompanied one of our drivers during his route delivery, to talk to the clients about installing 10 year, sealed battery, photo-electric alarms in their homes. Of the 23 clients on this particular route, 18 were in need of detectors with a total of 67 detectors to be installed. Toledo Fire Department suggests a detector on every floor as well as one in each sleeping area. These will be installed by a local Red Cross volunteer at absolutely no cost to the client.
Once these detectors are installed for clients on this route, we will move on to other routes and eventually will contact each Mobile Meals’ client. Mobile Meals is happy to partner with the local Red Cross to keep our clients safe!
