FREDERICK, Md. (April 19, 2019) — The American Red Cross has kicked off a national campaign to install 100,000 free smoke alarms across the country this spring as part of their Home Fire Campaign. Of that 100,000, they plan to install nearly 500 free smoke alarms in Brunswick and the surrounding region on Thurs., April 25 and Sat., April 27.
To achieve this goal, the Red Cross has teamed up with Plamondon Hospitality Partners, Roy Rogers, Dunkin Donuts, Rotary Club of Carroll Creek, Brunswick Ace Hardware and local fire departments to help spread the word. Volunteers can sign up to help canvass neighborhoods, install free smoke alarms, replace alarm batteries and help families create home fire escape plans. Area residents that are interested in learning more about fire prevention and safety can sign up to receive a free smoke alarm or have their existing alarms checked.
Volunteers can sign up for the April 25 event at bit.ly/Brunswick-4-25 or the April 27 event at bit.ly/Brunswick-4-27. No prior experience is required and all necessary training will be provided. Residents can sign up for free installations for either of those dates at bit.ly/smoke-alarm-appointment or by calling 443-297-7247. Services are free and available for all people in need.
“Plamondon Hospitality Partners has worked with the Red Cross on several of their initiatives over the years, and we’re especially excited to continue that partnership with the Sound the Alarm event,” said Michael Henningsen, Executive Vice President of Plamondon Hospitality Partners. “Fire prevention and safety is a very important initiative for the hospitality industry, and we strongly encourage residents to take advantage of this free program to help ensure the safety of their families.”
Events like this will be held across the country and are part of the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign, which has installed more than 1.5 million smoke alarms and saved more than 500 lives since launching in 2014. Donations will help to save lives through installing free smoke alarms, and preparing families to safely escape and recover from home fires.
