The American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign helps save lives by installing free smoke alarms in homes and by educating people about home fire safety. In NYC, we are proud to partner with the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY) and the FDNY Foundation to bring this program to the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.
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 Greater New York Region will provide installation services in Greater NY 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/homefire.
