Home Fire Safety Education and Smoke Alarm Request Form

Know what to do before, during, and after a fire. A 20-minute call could save your family!

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 your virtual appointment, Red Cross-trained volunteers will:

  • Provide guidance in testing your current smoke alarms
  • Help you develop a personalized fire escape plan to include: identifying two ways to safely 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 regularly practiced fire escape plan can save lives. Learn what else to do to keep your loved ones safe! 

*Safety is our top priority. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, we have postponed in-home visits 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.
