Smoke Alarms Save Lives!

Seven times a day, someone in this country dies in a home fire. Did you know that if a fire starts in your home, you may have just two minutes to escape?

American Red Cross partners and volunteers want to help you, your family and our community stay safe. Remember to test your smoke alarms monthly and practice your fire escape plan.

American Red Cross will be in West Reading installing FREE smoke alarms on Saturday, June 23, 2018 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Together we can help prevent needless tragedies in West Reading.

Want to volunteer? There are a number of ways you can be involved:
  • Smoke Alarm Installer - Conduct home visits, test existing smoke alarms in homes, replace batteries as needed, and install smoke alarms within the home according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Disaster Safety Educator - Provide education to residents on fire safety and additional local hazards, and assist residents in completing a home fire escape plan.
  • Documenter/Reporter - Document resident information, including the services provided. Complete all acknowledgement forms and reports for campaign tracking.
