Sound the Alarm Day of Action May 8, 2021

05/07/2021 10:28 AM | Anonymous

On this day, also World Red Cross Day, across more than 50 cities nationwide, Red Cross volunteers will meet with families by appointment outside their homes or virtually by phone, to review a home fire safety checklist, create an escape plan to practice their two-minute drill and offer a smoke alarm installation when it is safe to do so.   

Since the April 8 launch of Sound the Alarm, Red Cross retirees, volunteers, staff and partners have been working tirelessly and safely during COVID-19 to deliver the mission safely to at-risk households.

This annual Sound the Alarm initiative is a key part of the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign, which has saved at least 864 lives since launching in 2014. This work is made possible thanks to generous financial donations from national partners, Delta Air Lines and Lowe’s, and those of local donors.

Take the opportunity to pledge to prepare to keep your families, friends and community safe. If you are in a region that had limited volunteer opportunities, there are still ways for you to participate in this year’s activities.
