Sound the Alarm. Save a Life

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Shift 1: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Shift 2: 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Help install smoke alarms and share fire safety information across neighborhoods in Greene, Montgomery, and Preble counties.

SOCHE and Dayton Area Chapter of the American Red Cross are teaming up to increase volunteerism of area college students. With over 200,000 students at SOCHE member schools, we want to build a stronger volunteer base for the Red Cross and the region.

The first event will take place during National Fire Prevention Week and includes engaging students in the Red Cross program Sound the Alarm. Sound the Alarm is a home fire safety and smoke alarm installation program designed to save lives. Every day, seven people die in home fires, most in homes that lack working smoke alarms. Sadly, children and the elderly disproportionately lose their lives.

Your participation could save a life!
