Hello, Nashville Area Volunteers!
Many of you have taken part in the American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign, installing smoke alarms in homes around Nashville and educating people on the importance of having an escape plan in case of a home fire. On April 21st, we are taking our efforts to the next level as we Sound the Alarm and install 1,000 smoke alarms in East Nashville homes – in just one day!
We need YOU to help Sound the Alarm and Save Lives on April 21st. The event will take place from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM beginning at the Nashville Area Chapter at 2201 Charlotte Avenue. Please register to volunteer by visiting www.redcross.org/stanashville. You are encouraged to also register friends, family and coworkers to volunteer for this exciting event.
Across the country, the Campaign is making a difference. As of March 1st, the Red Cross and our partners across the country have saved at least 381 lives, reached 1,042,964 youth through youth preparedness programs, and installed over 1.1 million free smoke alarms since the Campaign began in 2014. Here in Tennessee, the Red Cross has installed over 25,000 free smoke alarms in homes and saved 11 documented lives since July 1st, 2014.
I look forward to seeing you on April 21st as we Sound the Alarm in Nashville. If you are unable to volunteer for this event, please consider making a financial contribution by visiting www.crowdrise.com/STANashville.
I look forward to joining you in saving lives on April 21st!
