The American Red Cross has launched the Home Fire Campaign to help reduce the number of home fire-related injuries and fatalities. The Red Cross is partnering with municipalities, fire departments and community groups to help families be better prepared for and take important steps to prevent home fires.

On September 14, volunteers with the Red Cross, Somerville Fire Department and Somerville OEM CERT team will be going door-to-door in neighborhoods, offering free smoke alarm installations in homes that need them.

Volunteers will also be distributing fire safety information and talking to families about what they can do now to be prepared should a fire break out in their home. All volunteers will be wearing identification tags while canvassing. Please feel free to request to see ID.
