Free Smoker Detectors Sept 28th
The American Red Cross of Maine, Raymond Fire & Rescue and Age Friendly Raymond are teaming up to make town residents safer by installing free smoke alarms in their homes, helping them create escape plans and providing other fire safety tips.
Residents of Town of Raymond, Maine can make an appointment for free smoke alarm installation by calling the Red Cross at 874-1192 and choosing Option 3 or by visiting soundthealarm.org/maine.
We will follow up with you to perform the installations on Saturday, Sept. 28.
Home fires kill an average of seven people each day in the United States. Working smoke alarms reduce the risk of death by half and having an escape plan further improves the odds.
The Raymond event is part of a national campaign launched by the Red Cross in 2014 to reduce home fire deaths. So far, the Red Cross and its partners have installed more than 1.8 million free smoke alarms. This work has saved at least 627 lives – including those of 11 Mainers.
