It may not be a typical Valentine’s Day gift, but love comes in all forms. Show how much you care for a loved one and order a free smoke alarm and installation from the American Red Cross of Northern Nevada.
Through its Home Fire Campaign, launched by the Red Cross in 2014, the Red Cross hopes to reduce home fire deaths and injuries by 25 percent. This is a great opportunity to woo your valentine with a free smoke alarm, along with a customized fire escape plan and fire-safety education shared by Red Cross volunteers. This is a free service and there is no obligation.
To request a free smoke alarm for yourself or a loved one, contact the Red Cross of Northern Nevada at 775-954-1185. Please leave your name, address, zip code and phone number. Callers will receive a response within 48 hours to schedule an installation date.

Additional facts and statistics:
- More than $7 billion in property damage occurs every year due to home fires.
- Smoke alarms cut the risk of death from a home fire in half.
