Volunteers needed to install 400 free smoke alarms during Red Cross Sound the Alarm event in Lake Forest Community



The Heart of Tennessee Chapter is seeking volunteers to help install more than 400 free smoke alarms for local families during a Sound the Alarm home fire safety event in Lake Forest Community on October 7.

“Sound the Alarm is a rewarding way to give back and directly help local families,” said Sandy Hughes, external relations government operations manager. “It’s a day of coming together to support one another, especially those most vulnerable to home fires. A working smoking alarm can be the difference between survival and tragedy — and as a community, we can help our neighbors stay safe by ensuring they have these lifesaving devices.”

Those interested can register now at RedCross.org/SoundtheAlarm to volunteer during the Red Cross Sound the Alarm event on October 7, 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. No prior experience is needed. Training will be provided at Lake Forest Park before volunteer teams — with members of the Red Cross LaVergne Fire Department — visit area homes to install smoke alarms and share fire safety information during the day.
