In addition to caring for local fire victims when they have nowhere else to turn, the American Red Cross is committed to promoting fire safety and helping to reduce the number of fire-related deaths and injuries that occur in our region each year. In partnership with local fire departments, community groups and corporate supporters, they are offering free smoke alarms to residents and providing fire preparedness education to hundreds of local families through their ongoing Home Fire Campaign.
The American Red Cross will install up to three smoke detectors per
household at no charge. They also have bed shakers for those that are
hard of hearing. Call 315-234-2299 to set up an appointment for the
install. They will also replace batteries as necessary. For more
information or to request your free smoke alarms, visit the American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign Website.
