Murfreesboro Fire Rescue and local volunteers from the American Red Cross recently canvassed selected neighborhoods in Murfreesboro this past Saturday, February 3.

"The State Fire Marshal's Office recently performed a fire risk analysis for every department in the state and has assigned risk areas for each community," said Fire Rescue Chief Mark Foulks. "More importantly, they have determined the areas that are high-risk for injuries or fatalities from structure fires."

Foulks said a wide-range of statistical and historical criteria are used in the assessment.

The Red Cross accompanied the fire department this past Saturday as part of a shared goal involving the safety of the community. Sean Armstrong with the American Red Cross (RedCrossBlood.org) said that it is now easier than ever to volunteer with the Red Cross.
