The Red Cross is also seeking volunteers to pre-canvas in select neighborhoods to leave door hangers that encourage residents to schedule appointments for alarm installations.

Sound the Alarm is part of the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign, which has installed over 1.5 million smoke alarms and saved over 500 lives in the U.S. since launching in 2014, the release stated. Locally, 40 lives saved can attribute to Red Cross installed smoke alarms.

To make an appointment to have free smoke alarms installed in your home, call 937-399-3872
