SAVE THE DATE: Wednesday, June 12th is the afternoon – evening to “Sound the Alarm: Save a Life” effort.
NOTE: More information to follow on exact time, meet-up location, etc. Please mark your calendar now though for this event.
This year American Red Cross volunteers and Roaring Fork Fire Rescue volunteers and staff will install free smoke alarms in three high risk neighborhoods in our District: Aspen-Basalt Mobile Home Park, Homestead Mobile Home Park, and El Jebel Mobile Home Park. We will also replace batteries in existing alarms, if feasible, and educate families about fire prevention and safety. “Teams” are needed!
Sound the Alarm installation and fire safety events will take place in more than 100 communities across the country this year, providing a lifesaving service in the quest to reduce death and injury from home fires. One day of your life can change someone else’s forever. Every day, 7 people die in home fires and tragically, most victims die in homes that don’t have working smoke alarms. The Red Cross & RFFR want to do everything we can to prevent these needless tragedies. In just four years, these efforts have saved hundreds of lives and made hundreds of thousands of households safer.
