Volunteer To Install Free Smoke Alarms

Volunteers from the American Red Cross and Patterson Park will knock on doors in our neighborhood on Saturday, March 7, to install free smoke alarms for any neighborhood residents who want them. The goal is to install 100 smoke alarms between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on that day.

American Red Cross volunteers will also Sound the Alarm in at-risk communities by: Educating 100,000 people nationwide about home fire safety. How to install free to air tv. Helping families create an escape plan to practice their 2-minute drill. Partnering with fire departments to install smoke alarms. Get Alarmed Kansas allows trained volunteers to install free smoke alarms in homes. The program provides smoke alarms to Kansas fire departments. The department will then schedule a time to come and install the device(s). Fire can grow and spread through a home in a matter of minutes. The advance warning provided by working smoke alarms save lives.

On Friday, Feb. 28, volunteers will leave flyers about the program on residents’ front doors. Volunteers will return on March 7 to canvas the neighborhood and ask neighbors if they would like smoke alarms installed.

“We want to make our neighbors aware of this wonderful free service being offered by the Red Cross,” said Joyce Gibbs, Patterson Park Civic Association president. “Sometimes when people knock on our doors and offer us something for free, we are skeptical. This is a legitimate offer that has the potential to save lives.”
