This fall, the Red Cross will launch Sound the Alarm, a series of home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events nationwide. Volunteers will install 100,000 free smoke alarms in high risk neighborhoods, culminating in the installation of the one millionth smoke alarm! Since 2014, the Red Cross, in partnership with fire departments and other local groups, has visited homes installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms and providing fire prevention and safety education to prevent needless tragedies. Join us in helping to save lives! On October 7th from 9:00am-1:00pm in Montgomery or Selma as we install 700 smoke alarms in local neighborhoods. Visit www.redcross.org/local/alabama/home-fire-safety to sign up for a local smoke alarm installation event. Current Red Cross volunteers can sign up by visiting volunteerconnection.redcross.org and selecting “Sound the Alarm” under ‘Shifts.’ For questions or assistance please contact Kelly Ford, American Red Cross Volunteer Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (334) 235-4758.
