This spring, the American Red Cross needs your help to install 100,000 free smoke alarms and raise funds for lifesaving services during Sound the Alarm home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events.
The American Red Cross Central California Region serves over 4.4 million residents throughout Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Tulare, and Ventura counties.
Every day, seven people die in home fires and the Red Cross wants to do everything we can to prevent these needless tragedies. Volunteers 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.
You can help us save a life by joining or making a donation today.
$15 can provide one smoke alarm for a family in need! Within the Central California Region, we install an average on THREE smoke alarms in a home to either replace alarms that didn't exist or weren't even working.
