RANDOLPH CO., GA (WALB) - First responders in Randolph County are partnering with the Red Cross to protect people from fires.

The Randolph County, Cuthbert, and Shellman Fire Departments and Randolph County EMS have installed more than 200 free smoke alarms in homes.
They'll continue the effort this weekend.

"Everybody is just going to put in together, they're going to get out on Saturday and they're going to make sure that everybody has a working smoke detector and teach home fire safety also," said Nature Malone, Red Cross Disaster Program Specialist.

Firefighters say the goal of their home fire preparedness campaign is to install 300 smoke detectors.
 They'll be out in neighborhoods Saturday from 10 to 2.
