Every day, 7 people die in home fires and tragically, most victims die in homes that don’t have working smoke alarms. The Red Cross wants to do everything we can to prevent these needless tragedies - that’s why we launched our Home Fire Campaign.
Volunteer participants 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.
In just four years, these efforts have saved hundreds of lives and made hundreds of thousands of households safer.
Moving into its third year, the Red Cross launched the Sound the Alarm campaign – a nationwide push to install 100,000 free smoke alarms and raise funds for lifesaving services during home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events. We hold events in more than 100 at-risk communities in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Sound the Alarm provides an opportunity for Tiffany Circle members to leverage the Red Cross brand and their leadership role to advocate for our lifesaving work and encourage others to financially support our efforts.
