Please join the American Red Cross Central California Region on Saturday, June 15, 2019 for a Sound the Alarm Event in Simi Valley. 

This is an impactful, fun, and simple way for volunteers from all walks of life to work together to provide a solution to a devastating national problem, home fires. Seven times a day in the United States, someone dies in a home fire and every 40 minutes a fire-related injury is reported. While home fires are the most common disaster facing Americans today, they are also the most preventable. Simply having a working smoke alarm in the home, reduces the risk of dying in a home fire by 50%! 

Through the campaign’s Install Events, the Red Cross teams up with Fire Departments, local partner agencies, businesses, community groups, and amazing volunteers like you to install free smoke alarms and provide preparedness education to fellow residents throughout our community. Volunteers must be at least 13-years o r older, no previous experience necessary.


The Red Cross is excited to invite you to be a part of bringing this impactful campaign back to Simi Valley! We hope that you will join us and register today for the Sound the Alarm Campaign Service Event on 6/15/2019 from 8:30 AM-12:30 PM.

Volunteers will meet at: 8:30 AM (please arrive on time to check-in and receive team assignment)
Location: 1550 Rory Ln, Simi Valley, CA 93063 (Simi Valley Country Mobile Home Estates) 
Note: Coffee and a light refreshments will be served in the morning. For more information about this event or to register online as a volunteer, go to: https://volunteerconnection.redcross.org/

With your help we can fight back against the harmful effects of home fires and save the lives of our fellow neighbors and friends!
