Sound the Alarm 2019

Last Saturday, the American Red Cross and the Fire Department, in partnership with several local groups got out to the streets with the goal of installing more than a 1000 smoke alarms in El Paso.

This event was part of a national campaign from the American Red Cross, in partnership with local Fire Departments, to provide free smoke alarms to their communities. By having a working smoke alarm residents can gain valuable time to evacuate safely in case of a fire.

During the home visits, residents also got to learn about basic fire safety advice and how to create a home evacuation plan.

Remember, if you get asked about smoke alarms, simply point them to alarms.elpasofire.org or 3-1-1 and CRR will take care of it.
