Event description

Description

Every day, seven people die in home fires, most in homes that lack working smoke alarms. The American Red Cross wants to improve the odds and save lives, and that’s why the Home Fire Campaign was launched. A critical part of the campaign is Sound the Alarm, a series of home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events across the country. This spring, we will install 100,000 free smoke alarms in neighborhoods nationwide.

We need you to make these events successful. Volunteer teams of 3 will provide residences with home fire safety tools, including free smoke alarms and life-saving fire safety information. These events involve working directly with clients, but there are also a few behind-the-scenes tasks. Sound the Alarm is great for friends, family, and groups of all sizes! Must be 16 years old to participate.

Here are positions available during this volunteer event:

  • Smoke Alarm Installer - Conduct home visits, test existing smoke alarms in homes, replace batteries as needed, and install smoke alarms using a drill.
  • Disaster Safety Educator - Provide live-saving education to residents on fire safety and assist residents in completing a home fire escape plan.
  • Documenter - Complete service acknowledgment forms and reports for campaign tracking, and assist educator and installer as needed

One day of your life can change someone else’s forever. Event will be held rain or shine!

Help us Sound the Alarm in Parchester Village! The reporting address is the Parchester Village Community Center, located at 900 Williams Drive, Richmond, CA 94806.
