Everyday, seven people die in home fires. In 2019, the Red Cross has a goal to install 100,000 free smoke alarms in more than 100 cities throughout the nation. We are so grateful for all the volunteers, the Calvert Fire Department and donors who made the Calvert Sound the Alarm event so successful.
