On October 19th, the Arizona Burn Foundation is partnering with the Glendale Fire Department to educate the community, reduce the risk of house fires, and save lives! With your help, we are installing free smoke alarms in homes located in high-risk neighborhoods.
We plan on reaching 400 homes with this event, so we need volunteers to help make this happen! We will provide you with all the necessary tools and training to do the installations. This is a great event that not only benefits families in need, but is also a fun way to hang out with your friends and family while networking with others that truly care about giving back.
Meet us at the southwest end of Sahuaro Ranch Park at 8:00am to help save lives! To sign up, visit azburn.org/smokealarms/ ... See MoreSee Less

The smoke alarm installation program began in 2006 to assist in preventing home fire deaths or burn injuries to children and adults. This program exists to ensure that burn survivors and community members living in older homes or in high risk areas have at least one working smoke alarm in their home. The Foundation supports and coordinates several installation events each year where volunteers and fire fighters install smoke alarms in high risk households throughout communities in Arizona. For more information contact: email@example.com. You may also sign up to volunteer for a smoke alarm walk by clicking the image below.
Smoke alarms save lives. 3 of every 5 home fire deaths resulted from fires where there was no smoke alarm installed or no working alarm in the home. Having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half.
As National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports death rates are much higher in fires in which a smoke alarm is present but did not operate, than in home fires with no smoke alarms at all.
