FIX THE BEEP
Fix the Beep is a non-profit organization founded by two Los Angeles high-schoolers with the goal of helping kids become aware of the fire-safety risks in their home caused by faulty smoke alarms. We work with schools and other organizations to bring awareness to these issues, and provide families with supplies and instructions to help them remedy their smoke alarm issues. Please help us any way you can by going to the ABOUT US page!

A Sense of Home
We are also working with "A Sense of Home."A Sense of Home strives to prevent homelessness by creating first-ever homes for youth aging out of foster care with donated furniture and home goods. 50% of those struggling with homelessness are former foster youth. Fix the Beep is working with them so we can provide our fire-safety kits to all of the young-adults who may need help getting adjusted with key things: like smoke alarms.
Fix the Beep School Education and Awareness Program
Work with student representatives to spread awareness to peers and the school community on how to maintain smoke alarms and support fire safety. Fix the Beep will provide a learning demonstration kit and a playbook on how to roll it out in each school. We also provide informational pamphlets in Spanish and English for ongoing use, and the full support of the Fix the Beep team. Remember October is Fire Safety month!
