The Home Fire Campaign helps save lives by installing free smoke alarms in homes that don't have them, and by educating people about home fire safety.
Stay Safe From Home Fires
The American Red Cross Southern California Region is working to Sound the Alarm in local communities by educating people about home fire safety. We’ll connect virtually with families to help create an escape plan to practice their 2-minute drill, and then partner with fire departments and community partners to install free smoke alarms by appointment, when it becomes safe to do so.
San Diego, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Imperial Counties
SAFETY FIRST! As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the Red Cross is adapting Sound the Alarm activities to protect the people we serve and our volunteers. Sound the Alarm may look different this year but our lifesaving mission to make families and communities safer from home fire continues.
In a Home Fire, Can Your Family Safely Escape in Just 2 Minutes?
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 Southern California Region will provide installation services in the Southern California 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.
