According to a release, the campaign involves visiting homes in neighborhoods that are at-risk for a home fire, and installing smoke alarms at no charge to residents.
The initiative hopes to be able to reduce home fire deaths and injuries by 25% over the next five years, and they’ve saved 91 lives so far, according to a release.
“We identify these at-risk neighborhoods based on previous home fires and age of residences and go door-to-door to interview residents and determine whether they have working smoke alarms, or any smoke alarm for that matter, and we install them where needed at no cost to the residents,” stated a release.
The campaign is coming to the area on July 23 and September 17 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., and the Red Cross is asking for volunteers to assist with the project, stated a release.
