American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign

Calendar Nov 3, 2018 at 9 am, runs for 1 week
Did you know that in a typical year, home fires kill more people than all other natural disasters combined in the United States? To save lives and help end fire tragedies, the Red Cross launched a nationwide Home Fire Campaign in 2014. The Home Fire Campaign helps save lives by installing free smoke alarms in homes that don't have them, and by educating people about home fire safety. Fire experts agree that people may have as little as two minutes to escape a burning home before it’s too late to get out – so we urge that every household to install smoke alarms, create a fire escape plan, and practice it until everyone can escape in less than two minutes. Do you need a smoke alarm in your home? Volunteers will be installing the alarms in the area on November 3.

If you would like to request a smoke alarm installation or volunteer for the event, please contact Jonathan Ross by emailing or by calling (207) 295-3199. For more information on the Home Fire Campaign and for more ways to be involved please visit
