Home Fire Preparedness campaign 

Home fires are the greatest disaster threat to American families. 
According to a 20134 National Fire Protection Association, Fire Analysis and Research Analysis seven people die every day from home fires. A fire-related injury is reported every 40 minutes. Annually, home fires cause 2,500 deaths and roughly $7 billion in property damage. You can take action to save yourself, your family and your neighbors by installing and checking smoke alarms and practicing evacuating when the alarm goes off.

The Council on Aging of Elkhart County is partnering with the American Red Cross by taking requests for a visit to install smoke alarms and provide home-safety plans and checklists to residents in our community. Click on this link for more information about this campaign. Also . . .



The Council on Aging's mission is to support seniors, living at home, for as long as they remain safe and healthy. We nurture mind, body and spirit by helping to overcome physical barriers, enhancing mental acuity and befriending our clients.


You can take action in your home and in your community and across the country -

here are a variety of ways to help:
  • Join the Red Cross and other local organizations as part of a coalition committed to improving fire safety in your community.
  • Sign on to volunteer with a coalition-planned home fire preparedness activity in your area, such as neighborhood canvassing, a smoke alarm installation rally or a youth-education activity.
  • Connect with your local coalition to learn how you can help support preparedness in at-risk neighborhoods in your community.
  • Take steps to become more prepared at home and help your neighbors do the same (download the Team Red Cross App to learn how).
  • Donate to support national safety and preparedness efforts.
