Northwest Region Home Fire Campaign

The Red Cross is working to reduce death and injury from home fires by 25% by 2020.

American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign

The Home Fire Campaign helps save lives by installing free smoke alarms in homes that don't have them, and by educating people about home fire safety.

Do You Need A Smoke Alarm?

Help us Sound the Alarm

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.

A Local Story From People Helped by the Home Fire Campaign

northwest

On October 24, 18 Red Cross volunteers and firefighters dispersed in three Kent communities to install smoke alarms, replace batteries and raise home fire safety awareness. The work was important for the community, and rewarding for the teams. “It was fun to see how much everyone enjoyed the work,” said AmeriCorps member Kayla Ihrig. “Instead of leaving early at the end of the day, people were playing games with the kids that came out to see the fire trucks. It was a great show of community.” The teams installed 179 alarms, many in homes otherwise had none. “We were surprised to find in one residential establishment, every home was without a working alarm,” said Allison Dedonato, Regional Preparedness Manager. “It was a real eye-opener.”
