Home Fire Preparedness Campaign (14+)

Join the Red Cross initiative to install lifesaving smoke alarms in local neighborhoods! 

Activities & Notes: The American Red Cross Home Fire Preparedness Campaign aims to reduce the number of home-fire deaths and injuries by 25 percent over the next five years, working with community partners and stakeholders to install smoke alarms and provide fire- and disaster-safety education in communities at risk for home fires.

We will either be (1) canvassing pre-determinded neighborhoods to offer smoke alarm installation appointments as well as other fire safety information or (2) installing smoke alarms for clients who have already confirmed an appointment.

Please bring water and good walking shoes!
