Red Cross Sound the Alarm Home Fire Safety Day of Action!
Most of us don’t realize we have just two minutes to escape a home fire. That’s why the Red Cross is preparing families to act quickly through our Home Fire Campaign. Red Cross volunteers will be meeting virtually with families to review home fire safety steps for their household, and in addition to the communities we serve, we’re also urging all of our Red Cross volunteers and their families to sign up for a free virtual home fire safety appointment on our Day of Action - Saturday, May 8, 2021.
During the free, 30-minute session, your household will create a home-fire escape plan and an emergency kit; we’ll walk you through testing your home’s smoke alarms; and we’ll also talk you through how to start these critical preparedness conversations with your loved ones and friends. Each virtual session can be conducted by phone or video call. If you are interested in signing your home up for an appointment, or if you know other households that may be interested, please fill out this short sign-up form or share it with others: Virtual Appointment Request: Home Fire Safety
