American Red Cross Campaign Reaches 100,000 Smoke Alarms

It is part of a nationwide Home Fire Campaign launched last October to reduce home fires.

The American Red Cross announced Aug. 13 that the Red Cross and its partners have installed more than 100,000 smoke alarms in homes across the country during the past 10 months. It is part of a nationwide Home Fire Campaign launched last October to reduce home fires.

"These 100,000 smoke alarms will be out there protecting families every day for years to come, thanks to the dedication of local volunteers and partners going door to door to spread preparedness information in their communities," said Russ Paulsen, the executive director of community preparedness and resilience services for the Red Cross. "We can count 15 of our neighbors who are still with us today and we know there will be more lives saved. This success lays the groundwork to more than double our efforts next year.”

The campaign has installed smoke alarms in almost 2,000 cities and towns in all 50 states. According to ARC, the campaign has already helped to save 15 lives in five states. "Home fires are tragic and devastating to those who experience them," Paulsen said. "The Red Cross is committed to mobilizing volunteers and local partners to help people protect and prepare both their families and communities."
