Sound the Alarm

**Updated June, 2023:

~In April and May, our dedicated team joined forces with the American Red Cross of Southeastern Pennsylvania to bring safety and peace of mind to our community. Together, we made a significant impact by installing smoke detectors, creating personalized escape plans, and sharing vital fire safety information in underserved neighborhoods.
Many homeowners do not replace smoke alarm batteries frequently enough, allowing existing batteries to die. We see residential fires every day and these new 10 year batteries will save lives!

We’re deeply committed to making a lasting difference and ensuring that everyone has access to the necessary resources and knowledge to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.
The numbers speak for themselves – a staggering 906 homes are now safer thanks to the “Sound the Alarm” program! We are honored to have been able to contribute to this life-saving initiative and extend our heartfelt gratitude to our partners at the American Red Cross for giving us the opportunity to volunteer and support this important cause.

Stay tuned for more updates on our ongoing efforts to create a safer community and empower individuals with invaluable fire safety tips. Together, we can make a real impact and build a stronger, more resilient neighborhood.

~On January 16, 2023, in honor of MLK Day of Service, the Clarke & Cohen team volunteered for the American Red Cross, installing free smoke alarms and sharing safety information to several Frankford area neighborhoods.

The American Red Cross of Southeastern PA program “Sound the Alarm, Save a Life” rallies volunteers to install free smoke alarms and share safety information within at-risk communities.

The volunteer team, including Clarke & Cohen, installed 198 free smoke alarms, made 88 homes safer, and served over 240 community members.

Home fires claim 7 lives every day, but having working smoke alarms can cut the risk of death by half.
