Firefighters in the Park: Summer Safety Tips!

By Lisa Stanchfield, Program Services Specialist

While gearing up for the warmer weather and all of the outdoor activities that brings, remember to focus on safety.

The American Red Cross was proud to participate in Firefighters in the Park, sponsored by the Town of Menasha Fire Department held on Saturday, May 5th at their Valley Rd Station.

This event focused on summertime safety tips. American Red Cross had the “Wheel of Misfortune” at this event, testing the knowledge of the participants which ranged in ages from preschool to adult. They were tested on safety topics in the following categories; Thunderstorms, Tornadoes, Floods, Fires, Water Safety, First Aid & CPR, Babysitting, and general Preparedness.

Let the Red Cross teach you how to be more prepared no matter what the emergency situation may be. For more information please contact one of our offices, or visit our website at
