Red Cross of Connecticut Smoke Alarm Install

The American Red Cross is helping families protect themselves from home fires through the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign. At no cost to you, we would like to demonstrate some simple changes in the home that can help you protect your family against fire. In addition, the Red Cross will install FREE smoke alarms where needed within your home.

The Red Cross and its partners will install a limited number of free smoke alarms for those who cannot afford to purchase smoke alarms or for those who are physically unable to install a smoke alarm. The Red Cross can also install a limited number of specialized bedside alarms for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing.

During your home visit, you will receive:

  • Installed smoke alarms if no working smoke alarms are present in your home
  • Guidance in the development of a Family Fire Escape Plan
  • Valuable fire safety information
  • Schedule an Appointment
