Red Cross to distribute free smoke detectors

As part of their Sound the Alarm fire safety campaign, the American Red Cross will be handing out free smoke detectors.

Since announcing the fire safety initiative just last month, the Red Cross has already taken major steps to keep communities safe — and prevent housefires. In Kingsport, the local chapter is even handing out free smoke detectors.

To ensure that the smoke detectors are in working order, families will have the opportunity to have the smoke detectors installed for them. This is particularly helpful to individuals who face accessibility issues and are elderly or disabled.
