Smoke alarms save lives, and the American Red Cross home fire campaignlaunched less than one year agois actively reinforcing that message.

Over the past 10 months, the Red Cross has installed more than 100,000 smoke alarms in almost 2,000 cities and towns in all 50 states, and has documented 15 lives saved ranging from a 3-year-old child to a 73-year-old grandmother.

Working with fire departments and community groups across the country, the Red Cross is targeting neighborhoods at high risk for fires, teaching residents about fire prevention and preparedness in coordination with smoke alarm installations. The ultimate goal of the multi-year campaign is to reduce U.S. home fire deaths and injuries by 25 por ciento.

With more than 1,800 local community partners and more than 40 national partner organizations, key supporters include:

  • Asociación Nacional de Protección contra Incendios (NFPA)
  • Asociación Internacional de Jefes de Bomberos (IAFC)
  • Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA)
  • United States Fire Administration (USFA)
  • Rebuilding Together
  • Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation
  • Meals on Wheels America
  • Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS)
  • National Council on Independent Living (NCIL)
  • Fire Department Safety Officers Association (FDSOA)
  • Visión 20/20
  • Project Paradigm
  • Hope worldwide
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Portlight Strategies, Cª.
  • Lott Carey
