Every 8 minutes volunteers across the nation respond to a disaster, most of the time, it’s a home fire. The Sound the Alarm campaign aims to reduce deaths and injuries caused by home fires across the nation through proactive home fire safety education and the installation of smoke alarms.
As a Home Fire Campaign team member, I help coordinate smoke alarm install events from large to small. Often in partnership with various local Fire Departments. From partnership building, community and media relations, and logistical support through GIS and planning. Our collective mission to reduce deaths and educate has resulted in thousands of homes and families made safer locally.
