Gilbert’s Home Fire Story: 'A Smoke Alarm Can Save Your Life'
April 30, 2019
When Gilbert’s home of 50 years caught fire, all five of his newly installed smoke alarms alerted him and his daughter to escape. Within minutes, Gilbert’s home was gone, but he credits the smoke alarms—provided for free through the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign—for saving his and his daughter’s lives.
