Help us Sound the Alarm about fire safety! Every day 7 people die in home fires. You can help change that:

This fall the American Red Cross will team up with fire departments, volunteers, and partners to install 100,000 free smoke alarms in more than 100 at-risk communities across the country. We'll also mark a major milestone - our 1 millionth smoke alarm installation since 2014!

You can participate by joining your local chapter in our own Sound The Alarm event on May 5th. Help us install 400 alarms in the city of Troy and together we can help save lives.


WHEN: Saturday, May 5th, 2018 - 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM

HOW: We need your support to make this event a success and install at least 250 alarms! Help us by installing smoke alarms, completing fire safety checklists and creating personalized fire escape plans with families. All training and supplies will be provided the day of along with breakfast and lunch!
