The American Red Cross has joined with local fire departments and community volunteers to install free smoke alarms in homes that need them. Smoke alarm installation events are scheduled in Everett and Springfield on April 27th and in Andover, North Andover, and Lawrence on May 4th. The Red Cross and its partners can test existing smoke alarms and install free smoke alarms. Fire safety teams will also talk to residents about fire escape plans. To have a smoke alarm installed in your home for free call 1-800-746-3511.
Volunteers are also needed to join the Red Cross during smoke alarm installation days. Volunteers can help save lives by preparing families to safely escape and recover from a tragic home fire.
