Volunteers needed for Sound the Alarm Home Fire Campaign

Volunteers needed for fire safety Campaign

The American Red Cross is partnering with Seymour Fire Department for the Sound the Alarm Home Fire Campaign to provide fire safety information to the public, test smoke alarms and install them where needed.

The event will be from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, beginning at the Community Agency Building, 113 N. Chestnut St. in Seymour.

Volunteers are needed to help document and collect resident information; installers to install and teach residents how to test their new alarms; and safety educators to teach residents about fire safety and assist them in completing a home fire escape plan.

Training begins at 1 p.m. before volunteers head out into predetermined areas.

If you would like to volunteer, email volunteerindcs @redcross.org.
