Since 2014, the Red Cross, in partnership with fire departments and other local groups, has visited homes installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms and providing fire prevention and safety education to prevent needless tragedies.
Join us today in helping to save lives.
In partnership with local fire departments, community groups and corporate supporters, we are offering FREE smoke alarms to residents in need and providing fire preparedness education to hundred of local families through our ongoing Home Fire Campaign.
Every year, the American Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters – the vast majority of which are home fires. And tragically, seven people die in home fires each day, most in homes that lack working smoke alarms. The Home Fire Campaign helps save lives by installing free smoke alarms in homes that don’t have them, and by educating people about home fire safety.
Spring 2018 the American Red Cross kicked off an annual event of Sound the Alarm, to install 100,000 alarms across the nation in a few short weeks. We rocked that goal and plan to do so again this spring.
But the program is more than a few weeks long – it is year round!
We hope you will join us year round in supporting making homes safer.
