ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

American Red Cross volunteers will install smoke alarms in South Albany homes on Saturday.

The Red Cross will partner with the Albany Fire Department to install free smoke alarms for residents who need them.

Volunteers will visit homes in the Southwood Drive and Tremont Avenue area, where a lack of smoke alarms is an issue.

The project is part of a nationwide Red Cross campaign to reduce home fire deaths.

"It's the cheapest form of life insurance that you can possibly purchase. It will wake you up at night. It will go off and alert you, and give you time to have an escape plan," said Nature Malone, Disaster Program Manager.

The goal is to install 150 smoke alarms during the project.
