Each year, the Red Cross responds to nearly 64,000 disasters, the vast majority of which are home fires. In 2014 the Red Cross began The Home Fire Campaign with the goal of reducing fire-related deaths and injuries in the U.S. 25 percent by 2020.  As a volunteer-led organization, we need your help to get there.
