The American Red Cross is asking people to volunteer their time and help save lives at upcoming Sound the Alarm home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events.
Sound the Alarm and be part of the nationwide Red Cross effort to help reduce the number of deaths and injuries from home fires. At these events, Red Cross volunteers, along with fire departments, other partners and new volunteers will canvass high-risk neighborhoods, install free smoke alarms, replace batteries in existing alarms, provide home fire safety tips and help families create escape plans. By volunteering with the Red Cross, you can truly make a difference in someone’s life. Please join us and help Sound the Alarm. You can also support this campaign by making a donation, fundraising, and partnering with us.
The Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters a year, the majority of which are home fires. Working smoke alarms in a home cut the risk of death by half, and having an escape plan further improves the odds of survival. The Red Cross wants to end these tragedies and save lives, the reason why the organization launched the Home Fire Campaign in 2014. Across the country, the Campaign is making a difference.
National Signature Event - April 28 – May 13, 2018
Please help us Sound the Alarm by volunteering to install smoke alarms, making a financial contribution, or taking steps to protect your own family from home fires.
