The American Red Cross is preparing families to act quickly through our Home Fire Campaign. Red Cross educators will provide tailored information on how to protect your home and reduce fire risks. During the virtual appointment, Red Cross-trained volunteers will:
- Provide assistance in testing your current smoke alarms
- Help you develop a personalized fire escape plan including identifying 2 ways to escape and a meeting place
- Provide valuable fire safety tips and training for your household
- Discuss an additional hazard specific to your area (i.e. flooding, hurricanes, tornados)
Did you know that if a fire starts in your home you may have as little as two minutes to escape? During a fire, early warning from a working smoke alarm plus a fire escape plan that has been practiced regularly can save lives. Learn what else to do to keep your loved ones safe!
After speaking with our representative, if needed, you will be automatically put on our list to receive a FREE smoke alarm installation for your household.
*Safety is our top priority. We have postponed in-home visits in certain counties during the COVID-19 pandemic and will resume FREE smoke alarm installations once it is safe to do so. Please note that all education will be conducted over the phone. For additional details, please call your local Red Cross office.
