Daylight saving time starts Sunday, and the American Red Cross reminds everyone to spring forward an hour and test the batteries in their smoke alarms during Red Cross Month.
The Red Cross of Southern Indiana will join the Seymour Fire Department and the Medical Reserve Corps to make sure area residents have working smoke alarms on every level of their home, including inside and outside bedrooms.
Volunteers are needed Saturday to help install free fire alarms and teach residents of Village Green Mobile Home Park off of South O’Brien Street in Seymour about fire safety.
The first shift of volunteers will be trained from 8 to 9 a.m. in the third-floor conference room of the Community Agency Building, 113 N. Chestnut St., Seymour, and then canvas the neighborhood from 9 a.m. to noon.
A second shift will have their training from 1 to 2 p.m. and canvass from 2 to 5 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
Anyone interested in volunteering to help install free smoke detectors or receiving a free smoke detector should call the Red Cross office at 812-522-3888.
