SAFETY FIRST! As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the Red Cross continues to adapt Sound the Alarm activities to protect the people we serve and our volunteers. Volunteers applying for in-person position assignments must be fully vaccinated.
Home fires claim seven lives every day, but you can help change that.
As part of the 2021 Sound the Alarm campaign, the American Red Cross Northern California Coastal Region is offering free online home fire safety classes with the goal of making 800 homes safer. We’ll help households create a home-fire escape plan and emergency go bag, along with other tips to prevent home fires.
Just One Day of Your Life Can Change Someone Else’s Forever
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 NCC Region will provide installation services in their 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.
