Every day 7 people die in home fires. You can help change that.
On September 30, the American Red Cross will team up with fire departments, volunteers, and partners to Sound the Alarm with home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events.
Volunteers will meet at Central Park at 9 and will work with local the fire department to knock on doors in designated neighborhoods to install smoke alarms. Volunteers are needed – no experience necessary! – There will be training provided on the spot to go out with fire fighters to install alarms for a few hours that day.
Volunteers will install 100,000 free smoke alarms in more than 100 at-risk communities across the country. Red Cross will also, mark a major milestone—our 1 millionth smoke alarm installation since 2014!
