Health Carousel Executive Helps Lead Red Cross Event

May 4, 2016

Health Carousel's Chief People Officer Marijke Woodruff was featured on local Channel 12 news this morning to help raise awareness about a Red Cross event happening on Saturday, May 7th. She and other organizers have helped mobilize 30 local businesses and community groups to create the right inaugural "Mega Blitz: A Case for Alarms." The Red Cross wants to eliminate home fire tragedies by offering to install free smoke alarms in area homes, both through canvassing events like the Mega Blitz as well as through the creation of individual home appointments. Smoke alarms are proven to increase a person’s chance of survival from a home fire by 50 percent. On May 7, the Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the American Red Cross is partnering with both the Cincinnati and Newport Fire Departments to create the largest smoke alarm installation event in the area’s history.

More than 450 volunteers are launching from the Horseshoe Casino and knocking on 3,500 doors in Over the Rhine (OTR). Mt. Auburn, West End, Walnut Hills, Avondale and Newport, Ky., with the goal of installing more than 1,000 free smoke alarms that day. Health Carousel has a long tradition of community involvement. The company routinely encourages its employees to participate and give back whenever possible. This Red Cross event presents another opportunity to volunteer and contribute to a greater cause. Marijke is encouraging anybody interested to participate. To sign-up individually or as a team, visit
