Join the American Red Cross to Sound the Alarm, a home fire safety and smoke alarm installation event.

On April 27th  the American Red Cross in Austin, TX needs your help to install 100,000 free smoke alarms and raise funds for lifesaving services during Sound the Alarm home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events.

Every day, seven people die in home fires and the Red Cross wants to do everything we can to prevent these needless tragedies. Volunteers work alongside fire departments and other local groups, canvassing at-risk neighborhoods to install free smoke alarms, replace batteries in existing alarms, educate families about fire prevention and safety, and fundraise for this lifesaving mission.

One day of your life can change someone else’s forever. Join us to Sound the Alarm. Save a Life. Visit the website for more information.
