The American Red Cross of the Central Valley is teaming up with the Fresno Fire Department to provide free smoke alarms to Fresno homes on Jan. 16.
The event, which starts at the Boys & Girls Club of Fresno County, is to celebrate MLK National Day of Service.
Installations will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and start at 540 N. Augusta St.
The event is part of the Home Fire Campaign, a national effort to reduce home fire deaths by installing free smoke alarms through the country and educating families on the importance of having an emergency preparedness plan, the American Red Cross said.
“The Fresno Fire Department is proud to partner with the Red Cross on this lifesaving initiative,” said Fresno fire Chief Kerri Donis. “It’s important for every family to have working smoke alarms throughout their home.”
