Sound the Alarm- Save A Life Campaign



This fall, 21st Mortgage will partner with the Red Cross to install 100,000 free smoke alarms in high risk neighborhoods nationwide.

Sound the Alarm installation and fire safety events will take place in more than 100 communities across the country, providing a lifesaving service in our quest to reduce death and injury from home fires. 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. That’s why the Red Cross rallied an army of volunteers and launched our Home Fire Campaign in 2014.

Since then:
  • 268 lives saved
  • 964,320 smoke alarms installed
  • 400,143 households made safer
  • 894,958 youth reached through campaign
