The Home Fire Campaign is focused on outreach, education and awareness. Working in conjunction with local fires departments and other community partners, the Red Cross is building coalitions in communities across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. These coalitions are helping the Red Cross organize volunteer teams to visit homes and install free smoke alarms, replace alarm batteries and help residents make home fire escape plans.
As part of the Home Fire Campaign, every spring, the Red Cross will rally volunteers to Sound the Alarm and install 100,000 new smoke alarms nationwide, saving lives in some of the nation's most at-risk communities. At the same time, we will raise home fire safety awareness by continuing to install smoke alarms and educate the community members year-round.
