The Indiana Region of the American Red Cross, with the help of its partners, reached at least 26 lives saved in Indiana through the national Red Cross Home Fire Campaign.
Since its launch in 2014, the Home Fire Campaign saved at least 610 lives across the country and made more than 770,000 homes safer through efforts to reduce deaths and injuries from home fires, which take an average of seven lives each day in the U.S.
The number of lives saved in Indiana that can be attributed to the Home Fire Campaign jumped from 17 to 26, after the following fires resolved without deaths or injuries in homes serviced by Red Cross Home Fire Campaign volunteers.
