Sound the Alarm is the Commonwealth of Virginia's premier Summit for life safety professionals, who strive to save lives across Virginia.  The Summit provides opportunities to learn and also network with professionals from varying disciplines within the fire service and Community Risk Reduction minded professionals.  Join us, if your mission is to save lives in your respective community. 

The Sound the Alarm Summit's intent is to host an annual event that is inclusive of all fire & life safety educators, public information officers, fire code officials, fire marshals, fire investigators, and fire inspectors to discuss concerns and events affecting fire safety and fire prevention in Virginia.

Why attend the Sound the Alarm Summit?

  • Resources you can use to share CRR messages with your community. 

John P. Farrell Jr. (Assistant PIO/FLSE/CRR ) for Lake of the Woods Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company Inc., describes how he was able to share resources with his community the next day at a National Night Out event. 

"The use of the QR codes, the Scan Me templates was all incorporated into our planned Close Before You Doze #CBYD campaign for NNO. It was very well received by our community members and more than one stated that they would be "passing along" the links to friends who weren't able to make it tonight."
