Saving Lives through Fire Safety
Opportunity is available year-round
In partnership with the Red Cross
Did you know that the 4% of homes without smoke alarms represent nearly 40% of home fires, and that having working smoke alarms can DOUBLE the chance of someone surviving a fire? Teams of volunteers can provide fire safety services, such as: testing current smoke alarms, installing new alarms, and sharing information on fire safety in neighborhoods at the greatest risk. For more information on this important initiative, visit the American Red Cross website.
Our goal is to reduce the number of fire deaths and injuries by 25% by 2020. If you are interested in promoting this cause, contact our local Red Cross at:
