Just one day of your life can change someone else’s forever. Home fires claim seven lives every day but having working smoke alarms can cut the risk of death by half. That’s why the American Red Cross is rallying 27,000 volunteers to install 100,000 free smoke alarms nationwide during Sound the Alarm events. Sound the Alarm is a critical part of our Home Fire Campaign that was launched in 2014.
Join us on Saturday, May 1 in Exposition Park as we’ll install free smoke alarms, share safety information in at-risk communities and fundraise to help families prepare for, respond to, and recover from home fires.
The American Red Cross serving Greater Long Beach, South Bay, Metro and Southeast Los Angeles is proud to present the Hometown Heroes Awards Luncheon on May 18, 2023 at the Carson Community Center in Carson, California.
