Smoke Alarm Request Form (Pre-COVID)

Smoke alarms save lives.
Installing a smoke alarm is the first step to keeping your family safe.

Each year, the Red Cross responds to an average of more than 62,000 disasters, the vast majority of which are home fires. So we set a goal to reduce fire-related deaths and injuries in the US by 25%.

On average:

  • 7 people die every day from a home fire, most impacting children and the elderly
  • 36 people suffer injuries as a result of home fires every day
  • Over $7 billion in property damage occurs every year

The Red Cross and its partners will install a limited number of free smoke alarms for those who cannot afford to purchase smoke alarms or for those who are physically unable to install a smoke alarm. The Red Cross also installs a limited number of specialized bedside alarms for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. 

To request a free installation, please complete all fields in the form below and click “Submit.” A local American Red Cross representative  will contact you to schedule an installation appointment.
