Seven times a day, someone in this country dies in a home fire.

That’s why the American Red Cross has launched a national campaign to reduce deaths and injuries from home fires by as much as 25 percent over the next five years. The campaign seeks to increase the use of smoke alarms in neighborhoods with higher numbers of home fires and to encourage all Americans to practice their fire escape plans.

The Red Cross responds to nearly 70,000 disasters each year in the United States – and the vast majority of those are home fires. The Red Cross Santa Barbara Chapter is committed to decreasing this number through a proactive approach: installing free smoke alarms and empowering families to make smart decisions during a disaster.
