Volunteers Needed for Sound the Alarm-Fire Safety Campaign

April 27 - May 12, 2019

This spring, Red Cross volunteers and partners will install 100,000 free smoke alarms in high risk neighborhoods nationwide. Sound the Alarm installation and fire safety events will take place in more than 100 communities across the country, providing a lifesaving service to reduce death and injury from home fires.

Already, 552 documented lives have been saved since the Home Fire Campaign began.

Just one day of your life can change someone else’s forever.

Bonnie and Gerry Gibson of Sultan, Washington, lost their son Greg to a home fire three years ago.  Since that day, Bonnie and Gerry have volunteered with the Red Cross to install nearly 3,000 smoke alarms to help save lives. “It’s a good feeling because we know that we’re helping to save a life,” Bonnie Gibson said. “I think Greg is looking down and saying good job, good job.”
