ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Red Cross volunteers knocked on doors across South Albany Saturday with potentially life-saving advice. 

Teams of people went from house-to-house teaching residents how to plan for a fire.

The group installed smoke detectors and helped families draft escape routes.

One volunteer said being prepared can make a big difference when an emergency happens. 

"Anytime that you can take measures to save a life, that's something worth doing," Kyle Carter, a ServPro volunteer, said.  

Volunteers from State Farms, the Senior Resource Center and Alpha Phi Alpha also hit the streets as part of the home fire campaign.
