A home fire can strike anywhere, anytime. Fires not only destroy homes and personal belongings, but they also cause serious injury and death. On a personal level, home fires are catastrophic. More people die in home fires each year than in many major natural disasters. Across the country, Red Cross responds to more than 60,000 home fires every year. Trained volunteers respond immediately to provide meals, shelter and support to those affected by fires.
To prevent the needless loss of life and injury, the Red Cross launched the Home Fire Campaign, which aims to reduce the number of fire deaths and injuries in the U.S. by 25 percent by 2020.
The Red Cross and its partners will install a limited number of free smoke alarms for those who cannot afford to purchase smoke alarms or for those who are physically unable to install a smoke alarm.
