This spring, the American Red Cross of the Greater Chesapeake Region needs your help to install and raise funds for nearly 2,000 free smoke alarms throughout Maryland and the Delmarva Peninsula. Funds raised will also support lifesaving fire safety education.

Nationally, seven people die each day in home fires - most often, in homes without working smoke alarms. We know these devices can cut the risk of death by half. That's why the American Red Cross launched the Home Fire Campaign in 2014 to help prevent these needless tragedies. The goal of our Home fire Campaign, also known as Sound the Alarm, is to reduce deaths and injuries and help ensure families are prepared.
Red Cross volunteers will 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 making a donation today.
