Seven times a day, someone in this country dies in a home fire. Most occur in homes that lack working smoke alarms, which can cut the risk of death by half.
Sound the Alarm. Save a Life is a series of events taking place cross the US where the Red Cross is partnering with fire departments and community groups to install FREE smoke alarms, educate families about fire prevention, and map fire escape routes across 100+ cities in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands. This two-week push of Sound the Alarm events is part of the bigger Home Fire Campaign, where our goal is to reduce deaths and injuries from these everyday disasters.
A gift of any size helps prepare, respond, and help families recover from home fires, and your gift can literally help save a life. Just $15 can cover the fire safety training and installation of 1 smoke alarm. Your support will also provide hope and urgent relief, like food, shelter, and other essentials, to people in their time of greatest need.
Please give what you can now and make a difference for those in urgent need!!
