Sound the Alarm. Save a Life - American Red Cross

related issues:

This fall, you are invited to join me, the American Red Cross and 35,000 volunteers in more than 100 communities across the country to install over 100,000 smoke alarms in an event called Sound the Alarm. Save a Life.

Did you know that the American Red Cross responds to a disaster every 8 minutes, and the vast majority of these are home fires? Sadly, every day seven people die from home fires, most in homes that lack working smoke alarms, with children and the elderly disproportionately killed. That’s why the Red Cross launched the Home Fire Campaign in 2014. Since then, Red Cross volunteers and partners have made over 300,000 households safer. Now we’re on the cusp of something big, and we need your help.

In Greater New York Region American Red Cross made over 25,000 homes safer and together with volunteers across the country they have saved over 159 lives. This year, from September 23rd – October 15th, we will install 1,000 smoke alarms in our great Borough of Brooklyn. We are counting on residents like you to help us achieve this major milestone! Here is how you can help:
