The American Red Cross has a nationwide campaign coming up to go into communities and install smoke alarms for free. This year, across the nation, from April 28th-May13th, we will install 100,000 smoke alarms. The Home Fire Campaign is a nationwide initiative to reduce the amount of fire related deaths across the nation. So far, there have been over 264 documented lives saved. Our volunteers and partners go into communities to educate people on fire safety, as well as check and install alarms for free. Last year, two of our volunteers installed an alarm on a Saturday in Chattanooga, and the following day a man had a house fire and was able to exit his house safely because of the alarm. This Red Cross website has more information about the program: Sound the Alarm. Save a Life.
Our Sound the Alarm date will be April 28th from 9am-2pm. To register a volunteer can visit www.redcross.org/STAChattanooga.
