The American Red Cross is taking their Home Fire Campaign to the next level in terms of growing nationwide awareness and involvement. Sound the Alarm. Save a Life. is a recurring national signature event this spring to install smoke alarms in at-risk neighborhoods across the country.
Here are a few statistics to be proud of since the beginning of the Home Fire Program in Oct. 2014:
- Over 381 Lives Saved
- Over 445,000 Households made safer
- Over 1,100,000 Alarms installed
- Over 378,000 Fire escape plans made
Specifically, the intention is to install 100,000 smoke alarms—reach 40,000 households and rally 35,000 volunteers —across more than 100 major city markets from April 28 to May 13, 2018. To do this, the Red Cross is asking if you would consider volunteering for this event.
