We're installing FREE smoke alarms in your community.

Help us Sound the Alarm about fire safety!

Every day 7 people die in home fires. You can help change that.

This spring, your local American Red Cross is teaming up with fire departments, volunteers, and partners to Sound the Alarm

with home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events.

Join us as we install more than 1,500 free smoke alarms across the region.

Together we can help save lives!
