RFPA President

 

The news has been dominated these past few weeks with the catastrophic wild- fires on the island of Maui. It’s become a familiar story here in California but not something usually associated with Hawaii. I think Hawaii, I think volcanos, not wildfires.

As I write this article, we have received word of several first responders on the island of Maui who have lost their homes. The numbers currently stand at 25 fire- fighters, 10 police officers and four life- guards. Some of these individuals lost their homes while fighting the fires and answering calls for service.

Security Officers Wanted

PS 121 Security is looking for security officers. Our business is comprised of retired/former/active LE and military officers. We have regular contracts and provide armed security for various private schools and religious locations. Our work is very clean and actually easy and enjoyable. Our customers count on our expertise and former training to provide them piece of mind and safety at these private religious schools, churches and synagogues.

 

Work a lot or work a little. Great extra money to subsidize your current income or to help you earn social security credits.

Help the Red Cross install FREE smoke alarms

On average, seven people die every day in home fires in the U.S. People are 50% more likely to survive a home fire if they have a working alarm in their home. That's why the American Red Cross offers free smoke alarms and installations throughout San Diego County.

We are in need of volunteers interested in joining our Hot Shots team to help us reach clients without working smoke alarms. Teams of 2 or 3 are assigned a route and go home to home in a specific area to install free smoke alarms and educate residents on home fire and wildfire safety. Each resident's installation and education takes about 15-20 minutes.

It's a great way to help serve your community by making people safer. We've documented 8 lives saved in San Diego County because of this program and over 1,788 lives saved throughout the nation. Help us continue to save lives and become a Red Cross Hot Shots volunteer.
