Red Cross volunteers needed to install smoke alarms

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Southwest Georgia Chapter of the American Red Cross is looking for volunteers for their fire prevention campaign.
This weekend, they'll install free smoke alarms at homes in Worth and Terrell Counties and make sure families have exit plans.
It's part of their Home Fire Preparedness Campaign aimed at reducing fire fatalities and injuries by 25% over five years.

"We will be knocking on your door, introducing ourselves there will be a member that has the American Red Cross vest on it so they will be easily identified,” said Nature Malone, Disaster Program Specialist. “Then we will ask if they have a working smoke detector if they have a working smoke detector then we'll go over the preparedness and make sure that those smoke alarms are working."  

Volunteers will install smoke alarms Saturday from 10 to 2.
