Sound The Alarm: Help Save Lives
North American Precis Syndicate
Help keep your loved ones and neighbors safe from home fires by installing working smoke alarms. Volunteer at www.SoundTheAlarm.org. (NAPS)
(NAPSI)—Every 45 minutes, someone in this country is injured in a
home fire, mostly in places without working smoke alarms—but you can
help reduce such statistics.
Three Steps Toward A Solution
1. Check that you have working
smoke alarms on every floor, in cooking areas and in every bedroom of your
2. Volunteer to help the American
Red Cross. It’s calling for thousands of volunteers to join Sound
the Alarm events across the country as part of its Home Fire Campaign. During
these events, volunteers and partners install smoke alarms, replace batteries
in existing alarms and help families create escape plans. As of March, the
campaign is credited with saving 381 lives.
More than 1.1 million smoke alarms have been installed during Sound the
Alarm home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events and volunteers are
needed to help with upcoming events.
3. Donate to the American Red
Cross. The money will help educate families on fire safety; install free
smoke alarms nationwide; and provide food, comfort and aid to those who have
been affected by a home fire. You’ll be joining thousands of other
Americans and generous organizations including Almost Family, Delta Air
Lines, and FEMA through its Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program.
