Every day, seven people die in home fires and the Red Cross wants to do everything we can to prevent these needless tragedies. Volunteers work alongside fire departments and other local groups, canvassing at-risk neighborhoods to install free smoke alarms, replace batteries in existing alarms, educate families about fire prevention and safety, and fundraise for this lifesaving mission.
This spring, the Red Cross needs your help to install free smoke alarms in New Jersey. You can choose one day or several days and volunteer with us in Essex, Cumberland and Ocean Counties. You can also help raise funds for lifesaving services during Sound the Alarm home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events.
