On September 23 and October 7, your American Red Cross in the National Capital Region is mobilizing to Sound the Alarm to reduce deaths and injuries from home fires by installing FREE smoke alarms in our community. Join us and be a part of this lifesaving effort by making a donation today.
The Challenge: Home fires kill seven people every day in the U.S. More than 60% fire-related deaths are in homes without working smoke alarms, and more than 5 million U.S. homes are without smoke alarm
The Solution: Together with volunteers, fire departments and local community partners, we are installing FREE smoke alarms, replacing dead alarm batteries, helping families create escape plans and teaching people about fire prevention. Sound the Alarm. Save a Life.
