Home fires claim seven lives every day, but you can help change that.
Pledge to keep your family safe and schedule a free smoke alarm installation during a local Sound the Alarm event. Give back to your community by volunteering at a Sound the Alarm event with no prior experience needed. Questions? Call the Sound the Alarm hotline: 310-445-9914
Prepare, respond and help families recover from home fires.
1. The Red Cross and its partners can test existing smoke alarms and install up to three free smoke alarms for those that need them.
2. The Los Angeles Region will provide installation services in the Los Angeles region only. Requests will be fulfilled as resources allow, with priority given to requests during National Sound the Alarm events. If you live outside of this area and would like to identify your local region office, please visit Redcross.org (or call 1-800-REDCROSS).
3. If you are able to purchase and install your own smoke alarm but would like information on home fire safety and smoke alarm installation, please visit Redcross.org/fire.
