Preparing Our Communities

Red Cross of Connecticut Home Fire

Installing smoke alarms in our communities.

As part of the Red Cross Home Fire Preparedness Campaign, we have been going out to communities across our region to install free smoke alarms and provide emergency preparedness education to residents. Our region had the opportunity to witness the importance of this campaign first hand during our tremendously successful smoke alarm installation on October 22 in the Onleyville section of Providence. Several Red Crossers came out to help install more than 150 smoke alarms in the community in just a few short hours. It was an inspiring day for all of us to help provide education and resources to those who need it the most.
