Every day, seven people die and another 36 are injured due to a home fire. Sadly, many of these cases could have been prevented with properly working smoke alarms. That is why the Red Cross is ready to Sound the Alarm in our Southern California communities. Sound the Alarm is a national Red Cross campaign consisting of a series of home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events.

Since 2014, the Red Cross, in partnership with fire departments and other local groups, has visited homes installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms and providing fire prevention and safety education to prevent needless tragedies. To date, the Red Cross has installed over One Million smoke alarms and saved an estimated 415 lives.

Join us to Sound the Alarm and help save lives.
