Did you know that the American Red Cross responds to a disaster every 8 minutes, and the vast majority of these are home fires? Sadly, every day seven people die from home fires, most in homes that lack working smoke alarms, with children and the elderly disproportionately killed.
That’s why the Red Cross launched the Home Fire Campaign in 2014. Since then, volunteers and partners have made over 300,000 households safer. Now we’re on the cusp of something big, and we need your help.
On January 13, 2018 at 8 a.m., we will be installing smoke alarms in the 3rd Ward of Houston, Texas. We are counting on volunteers like you to help us ensure that our neighbors are prepared for home fires!
