Red Cross Seeking Volunteers for Sound the Alarm Campaign

Volunteers are needed to work with current Red Cross volunteers and staff, members of local fire departments, and other partners to install smoke alarms in local homes. Sound the Alarm is part of the larger Red Cross Home Fire Campaign which aims to reduce home fire deaths and injuries through providing disaster preparedness information, home fire safety instruction, and the installation of FREE smoke alarms. Since the program’s inception in 2014, more than 36,000 families in Central & Southern Ohio been made safer through the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign.
