  • Red Cross aiming to install 100000 smoke alarms in 16 days, volunteers needed

Since the program started four years ago, over 25,000 free smoke alarms have been installed in Tennessee homes.

Hundreds of Red Cross volunteers were sounding the alarm Saturday for fire safety. "Multiple smoke alarms in a house are the cheapest and most effective life savers for people in home fires". Red Cross leaders say it's important to make sure people understand the importance of having a working alarm in a fire emergency. "Batteries of a smoke detector have a life expectancy of around seven years", said Dell Sprecher, West Fargo Fire Marshal.

Residents in these neighborhoods can go to these locations from 10 a.m.to 1 p.m. if they want to have free fire alarms installed in their homes. Brown says they'll be tackling the areas where fires happen the most.

"Over half of the fire deaths that we have investigated had no smoke alarms", a Jackson firefighter said. "The lives of our parents, grandparent and children must be saved", said a CFD representative.

Anyone that needs a free smoke alarm can call the American Red Cross and someone will set up an appointment to come out and set it up.

The "Sound The Alarm" event is happening on Saturday, April 28th in New Haven from 8 a.m.to 2 p.m. The local Red Cross hopes to recruit 200 volunteers from around the community and install 600 smoke alarms at this event.
