Volunteer now to Sound the Alarm in your community!
In the coming weeks, we will be reaching out to recruit 35,000 volunteers to install 100,000 free smoke alarms across the country as part of Sound the Alarm – a series of lifesaving home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events happening September 23 – October 15.
I think you would make a great addition to our volunteer community, Friend.Would you be willing to dedicate a few hours of your time to making a lifesaving difference?
I hope you’ll be a part of this important effort. Home fires disproportionately harm children and seniors, and most deaths occur in homes that lack working smoke alarms. That’s why the Red Cross started the Home Fire Campaign in 2014 – to reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by fires in homes by 25 percent.
Seven Americans die every day from fires in their homes. By signing up as a volunteer to Sound the Alarm this fall, you can help save those lives.
Friend, did you know that 90 percent of the Red Cross’s humanitarian efforts are carried out by volunteers?
These volunteers are friends and neighbors who care about their community – people just like you. They are a diverse group, but they all share one thing: They know how deeply rewarding it can feel to make their town a safer place to live, and how delightful it can be to get to know their neighbors in the process.
Since we first launched the Home Fire Campaign in 2014, our volunteers have achieved so much: installing 941,916 smoke alarms, educating 884,007 youth about fire safety, and saving hundreds of lives.
Sound the Alarm is part of this ongoing Home Fire Campaign, and if you join us as one of those 35,000 volunteers this fall, we can bring the total number of free smoke alarms we’ve installed as part of our Home Fire Campaign since 2014 to one million!
