A working smoke alarm is the difference between life or death for a vulnerable resident. Our Community Smoke Alarm Program, in partnership with local fire departments, volunteers, and the American Red Cross, provides 10-year, battery sealed, dual-sensor smoke alarms to low-income and high-risk neighborhoods. You will educate residents on the importance of home fire-escape plans and fire safety to give them precious time to get out safely!

At age 65, older adults are twice as likely to be killed or injured by fires compared to the population at large. By age 75, that risk increases to three times that of the general population — and to four times by age 85. We teach older adults how to protect themselves from fires and falls.
