Do You Need A Smoke Alarm?
Help us Sound the Alarm
The Red Cross is responding to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, as well as everyday disasters such as home fires. Our focus in on providing relief to those affected by these disasters. We will be postponing Sound the Alarm events. Check back for updates. Connect with your local Red Cross to find opportunities to volunteer in your community today.
This spring, Red Cross volunteers will install 100,000 free smoke alarms in high risk neighborhoods nationwide. Sound the Alarm installation and fire safety events will take place in more than 100 communities across the country, providing a lifesaving service in our quest to reduce death and injury from home fires.
In partnership with local fire departments and other groups, we've made hundreds of thousands of households safer in just three years. This lifesaving work is part of our Home Fire Campaign, in response to a sobering statistic-every day, seven people die in home fires, most in homes that lack working smoke alarms.
