The Red Cross responds to 62,000 disasters a year, the majority of which are home fires. According to the National Fire Protection Association, working smoke alarms cut the risk of death by half. Having an emergency plan further improves the odds of survival. We want to end these tragedies and save lives. That’s why we are sounding the alarm about homes fires! Since 2014, we’ve installed about two million smoke alarms nationwide and helped families make escape plans. Your willingness to support Sound the Alarm 2020 will help us continue this lifesaving work plus help families that have been struck by home fires.
