American Red Cross teaming up with local fire departments to install free smoke alarms

It’s a simple tool that can save your family’s life in an emergency.

Right now, the American Red Cross is teaming up with local fire departments to “Sound the Alarm.”

They’re looking to install hundreds of free smoke alarms on October 7 and need about 400 volunteers in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Newport News.
