Oberlin, OH- The Firelands FFA chapter is focusing on community safety this year and has created a project to help improve emergency response time. After some research, we found that only around 1 in 10 houses have green reflective address signs in their yards. Those signs can improve emergency response time by 20%, which could be the difference between life and death. Firelands Ag. Business class has made it their project to help supply the community with green reflective address signs.
Through Operation G.R.A.S.S., green reflective address safety signs will be made available for free to members of the Firelands community. The first phase of our project is for community members aged 60 and over as well families with disabilities. The chapter is asking for a $15 donation if the requester is willing and able to make a donation. Donations will help make the project sustainable. Free installation is provided upon request. Order yours by February 1st. Signs available while supplies and funds last. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
