A fire in Norwalk, Ohio in January 2018 claimed the lives of three people, and forever affected the surviving family members. There were no working smoke alarms in the home.
Rob Griggs, who lost his parents and a younger brother in that fire, is now on a crusade to make sure every home has working smoke alarms. In this interview, he talks about being notified of the tragedy, learning of the lack of smoke alarms, and how he's helping the Red Cross Sound the Alarm to help save lives. Lake Erie/Heartland Chapter Executive Director Lara Kiefer also explains the vital role board members like Rob play in helping the Red Cross meet its mission.
