According to the American Red Cross, seven people die every day in house fires. Most of those deaths come from homes without working smoke alarms.
Which is why on April 28th the American Red Cross will kick off their ‘Sound the Alarm’ campaign, bringing these potentially lifesaving smoke alarms to you, free of charge.
The American Red Cross says 100,000 smoke alarms will be distributed at events nationwide.
The campaign will last until May 13th, according to the American Red Cross.
