Event Location:

The Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters a year and the vast majority of these disasters are home fires. 7 people die in home fires each day, most in homes that lack working smoke alarms. In 2014 the Red Cross launched the Home Fire Campaign which aims to reduce home fire deaths and injuries by 25 percent. To date, we have saved 381 lives. We are seeking Volunteers to help install smoke alarms in your community.  Additional detail is posted at http://www.redcross.org/local/california/northern-california-coastal/home-fire-safety

From April 28th – May 13th, Red Cross Volunteers, along with our community partners, will install 100,000 smoke alarms in over 100 cities across the nation

There are four roles on each team; EducatorInstallerDocumenter and Installer AssistantTraining is provided on the morning of the events as is breakfast and lunch.   Participants will receive T-Shirts on the day of the event.

Register by clicking on the link below.   If registration is still open, it will take you to a registration form.

Note on minimum age requirement: At the Sound the Alarm event participants will install FREE smoke alarms for people living in at-risk neighborhoods, educate them on basic fire safety and help them create fire escape plans. The minimum age to participate in home visits is 16. Youth under 13 cannot enter a home, even with a parent/guardian. But a great role they could have with a parent is canvassing – going to residences that haven’t made an appointment with American Red Cross yet and trying to secure one for later that day, or the upcoming weeks.
