This fall, the American Red Cross North Texas is mobilizing to Sound the Alarm to reduce deaths and injuries from home fires by installing free smoke alarms in our community. Over three weekends from April 28-May 13, more than 300 volunteers will install 2,000 free smoke alarms in at-risk neighborhoods across the Metroplex.
Join us and be a part of this lifesaving effort by making a donation or volunteering today.
The Problem: Home fires kill seven people every day in the U.S. More than 60 percent of fire-related deaths occur in homes lacking working smoke alarms and more than 5 million U.S. homes are without smoke alarms.
The Solution: Together with volunteers, fire departments and local community partners, we are installing FREE smoke alarms, replacing alarm batteries, helping families create escape plans and teaching people about fire prevention.
