Red Cross volunteers, along with fire departments and other partners canvass at-risk neighborhoods, installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms, and providing fire prevention and safety education. In just three years, we’ve accomplished so much, including the installation of more than 1 million smoke alarms and prepared more than 1 million people against home fires through our home visits.
Red Cross volunteers teamed up with the local fire department to install free smoke alarms in Boise homes. This effort was part of the American Red Cross’ national Sound the Alarm, Save a Life campaign, which aims to reduce home fire deaths in the United States by 25 percent by 2020.
