Each year, the Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters, the vast majority of which are home fires. So we set a goal to reduce fire-related deaths and injuries in the US by 25% by 2020. On average, seven people die every day from a home fire, most impacting children and the elderly. If you have a fire, smoke alarms can cut nearly in half your risk of dying in a fire. Check your smoke alarm batteries monthly and join us to Sound the Alarm. Save a Life.
