The meeting point will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at the paved lot at Ken Knight Drive and Moncrief Road. Volunteers and firefighters will disperse to the neighborhood from there.

The area has been identified as a high-risk area during the hurricane season and thus the first recipient of the joint effort.

In addition to the distribution of the buckets, JFRD’s Fire Prevention division will also be on hand and working with volunteers of the American Red Cross to identify needs and install smoke alarms in this same community.
