On May 18-19, the Montana Red Cross, Phillips 66 and other community partners will install free smoke alarms in more than 60 Billings homes as part of a nationwide Red Cross effort to reduce deaths and injuries caused by home fires.
Volunteers will go door-to-door, installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms and helping families create escape plans.
On average, families have about 2 minutes to escape during a home fire so having working smoke alarms and a fire escape plan can make all the difference.
Since the American Red Cross Home Fire campaign launched in 2014, it has been credited with saving 381 lives across the country and made more than 487,000 homes safer.
In order to install alarms in 60 Billings homes, the Montana Red Cross needs more than 40 volunteers to take part.
