Home Fire Preparedness Smoke Alarm Event - Wausau, WI\

Seven times a day in the United States, someone dies in a home fire. Even more frequently, American Red Cross volunteers provide help to families who have lost their home to devastating fires. It's more important than ever that we all join together to save lives, reduce injuries and cut down on needless losses from home fires. 

We are asking YOU to join us in this nationwide public initiative that aims to reduce the number of fire deaths and injuries in the U.S. by 25% within 5 years. 

Register today for the Home Fire Preparedness Smoke Alarm Installation Campaign in Wausau, WI.
