Sound The Alarm: Dayton Red Cross installs smoke alarms for free

The American Red Cross hosted its Sound the Alarm event that encourages the use of smoke alarms to help reduce the number of deaths caused by house fires.

It's part of a nationwide program reminding families that not having a working smoke detector in your home can be deadly, but it is a problem the Red Cross wants to help you fix. More than 1.2 million free smoke alarms have since been installed, including more than 12.000 in Maine. It takes an average of two minutes to escape a house fire. "We were able to put in three smoke alarms to keep her that little bit safer". "They're going to have someone talk about some of the basic fire safety tips".

"That is why Sound The Alarm is so important, that's why the Red Cross is launching this campaign", said Rabenstine.

According to the American Red Cross, seven people are killed in house fires every day across the USA, and most occur in homes without working smoke alarms.

"You hear me say it hundred times, again and again, smoke alarms save lives", NOFD Superintendent Tim McConnell said.

"We'll come out, assess your home, see how many you need".

And smoke alarms, he says, are proven to do just that.

"[It's about] getting to know the area, getting to know the people in the area", said Red Cross volunteer Doug Rood.
