Free smoke alarms to be installed in NB Homes SATURDAY

May 10, 2019-Toledo (Ohio) – Across Northwest Ohio, the American Red Cross responds to a home fire, on average, every 19 hours. Because of this staggering statistic, the Red Cross is announcing Sound the Alarm.

Part of a national initiative, Sound the Alarm looks reduce injuries and deaths due to home fires by 25% by the year 2020. To accomplish his goal, Red Cross volunteers in our community will install, free smoke alarms, as well as sit down with the homeowner to help prepare a safety checklist and escape route for their home.

On May 11th volunteers will be going door to door offering free smoke alarms and education to residents in the neighborhood surrounding the North Baltimore Fire Department. Teams will be doing outreach beginning at 10:00am hoping to make 200 homes safer!

“Providing free smoke detectors as well as a safety check list is really a two-pronged approach to ensuring the safety of families and first responders in our community,” says Rachel Hepner-Zawodny, Executive Director for the American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio. “Our program saved 2 lives in October of 2018, marking the first two documented saves in NW Ohio but over 580 nationally. The program works; period.”


Need a FREE SMOKE Detector?

If a family is in need of a smoke detector, they can set-up an appointment with the Red Cross by calling 844-207-4509.

While smoke installations and family preparation for fires will be a year-round initiative, the Sound the Alarm campaign will be an annual spring effort to increase awareness and safety across Northwest Ohio.
