Seven times 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.
Sound the Alarm. Save a Life is a recurring national event where Red Cross volunteers will be partnering with fire departments and community groups across the country to install FREE smoke alarms, educate families about fire prevention, and map fire escape routes.
A gift of any size helps the Red Cross prepare and respond to families recovering from home fires. Your gift can literally help save a life and provide hope and urgent relief to people in their time of greatest need. Last year, your local Red Cross responded to 915 fires by providing assistance and casework to 1,509 families in the Greater Chesapeake Region.
