Did you know that 7x a day someone in this country dies in a house fire and more than 60% of fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms?
As a first responder to these local tragedies, the Red Cross is working to improve the odds of survival by as much as 25 percent over the next few years. Sound the Alarm. Save a Life is an event where the Red Cross will be partnering with fire departments and community groups across the country, including here in central Illinois, to install FREE smoke alarms, educate families about fire prevention, and map fire escape routes.
A gift of any size helps prepare, respond, and help families recover from home fires. Your gift can literally help save a life and provide hope and urgent relief, like food, shelter, and other essentials, to people in their time of greatest need.
Please support this important effort and encourage your family and friends to join you. Just share the link to this page and let your circle of friends know why this cause is important! Thank you!
