American Red Cross - Sound the Alarm

American Red Cross - Sound the Alarm

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. Working to reduce death and injury from home fires, the American Red Cross launched a home fire safety and smoke alarm installation campaign called Sound the Alarm. This Spring, Red Cross volunteers and partners are installing 100,000 free smoke alarms in more than 100 communities across the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virginia Islands. The Coastal Virginia Chapter of the American Red Cross has partnered with the Newport News Fire Department and is looking for volunteers to Sound the Alarm by installing free smoke alarms in Newport News on Saturday, April 27 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Lunch is provided, and volunteers should wear comfortable clothing and shoes and bring an ID. Training takes place on site with volunteers organized into teams and given an area to walk through. Volunteer participants work alongside fire department staff and other local groups to:

  • Canvass specified neighborhoods;

  • Install free smoke alarms;

  • Replace batteries in existing alarms; and

  • Provide fire prevention and safety education.

To date, the Home Fire Prevention Campaign has been integral in saving over 500 lives, nation-wide! Lunch, drinks, snacks, & t-shirts will be provided! The Coastal Virginia Chapter also needs volunteers for Sound the Alarm events in Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Virginia Beach on May 4.

One day of your life can change someone else's forever. Watch the Sound the Alarm PSAand visit www.soundthealarm.org to learn more and to register.


No training or experience required!  Online training information will be provided after signing up. Contact Debbie Sutton at Debra.Sutton@redcross.org or call 757-838-7320 to sign up.

Bridles & Boots

Bridles & Boots

This is one of our biggest fund raising events for the whole year. We do not need volunteers for the actual event, but in the weeks preceding the event, we have groups come and help volunteer on property to get ready for the event. They do things like wash fences, clean the barn, cut grass, weed, mulch. This is a labor intensive event as we turn the indoor arena into a sit down catered event so there are plenty of things to do. We have often had CNU students that come out as a group to volunteer for a day or half day.

Visit https://dreamcatchers.org/bridles-boots for more information!
