The American Red Cross responds to approximately 500 fires in Northern New England each year, providing financial assistance for food, clothing and emergency shelter. The region has ramped up our prevention efforts and is taking our fire safety message to the cities and towns of the Northern New England Region. Teams of volunteers are going door-to-door in targeted neighborhoods, meeting with residents, sharing fire safety tips, and installing free smoke alarms where needed.
The Home Fire Campaign and Sound the Alarm rely on the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, who come from businesses, schools, civic organizations and elsewhere in the community. They help spread the message of fire safety and help keep our communities safe.
