The American Red Cross Serving Central Texas will host a Sound the Alarm home fire safety and smoke alarm installation event in Austin on December 9th, 2017. Volunteers will be canvassing neighborhoods, installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms and helping families create escape plans at the Pecan Park mobile home park in Southeast Austin.
We need your help! Volunteers are needed and no experience is necessary. Available positions include installer, educator and recorder.
The Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters a year, the majority of which are home fires. Working smoke alarms in a home cut the risk of death by half, and having an escape plan further improves the odds of survival. The Red Cross wants to end these tragedies and save lives, that’s why we launched the Home Fire Campaign in 2014.
