Geismar residents received emergency preparedness, hurricane safety and fire safety information during a canvassing event June 24.

BASF employee volunteers and the American Red Cross went door to door in six teams to provide information and answer questions at roughly 250 homes along La. 30 and La. 73.

More safety information is available on the American Red Cross emergency app, available for download from the App Store or Google Play. The app combines more than 35 severe weather and disaster alerts and offers first aid and fire safety instructions and listings for local shelters during an emergency.
