Red Cross, Partners Save 100+ Lives Installing Smoke Alarms
The American Red Cross and its partners have saved at least 102 lives as part of its nationwide Home Fire Campaign to reduce the number of home fire deaths and injuries. Since October 2014, the Red Cross has worked with fire departments and community groups across the country as part of a multi-year campaign to reduce the number of home fire deaths and injuries by 25 percent.
Tennessee Red Cross volunteers and staff have been working hard to make homes safer by distributing smoke alarms and fire safety information in neighborhoods around the state. Pictured here are East Tennessee volunteers Fritz and Mary Walker installing a smoke alarm in a home in January.
