ORGANIZATION: American Red Cross Central California Region


Join us Saturday, April 22nd for our Sound the Alarm event in Madera where volunteers, partners, and community members will have the opportunity to team up and install free smoke alarms and provide preparedness education to local residents in Hanford.

Home fires claim seven lives every day, but having working smoke alarms can cut the risk of death by half. This event is an impactful, fun, and amazing way for volunteers to work together to strengthen our community and provide a solution to a devastating national problem, home fires.
