Description: Please join us on our big National Sound the Alarm event where we aim to install 800 alarms on April 18th 2020 in Oceanside, CA. We will need all the help we can get, so if you’re interested in joining us, please email points of contact below for more details.

If you’ve never participated before, it’s easy, fun and a great way to help your community to install free smoke alarms and provide home fire safety visits. We organize volunteers into teams of two or three and give each person the role of either Educator, Installer, or Documenter.

–The Educator discusses various home safety practices with the residents including how to prevent home fires and how to develop a 2-minute home fire escape plan.

–The Installer is responsible for installing the smoke alarms in the best areas in the home.

–The Documenter fills out the necessary paperwork to document the install. We do a training session on site beforehand.

All you need to do is wear comfy walking shoes and we will provide the rest including breakfast, snacks, lunch, all the equipment needed, and a map of your assigned area.

Tentative Schedule:

8AM: Meet at the To-be-Determined community clubhouse (location to be announced) in Oceanside, CA.

8A-9A: Breakfast, training, and supply distribution

9A-1P: Teams in group of 2 or 3 go into the neighborhoods and install smoke alarms

1 PM: Check back in at clubhouse, return supplies, have lunch and celebrate the successful event !
