On July 22, the Red Cross and Old Town Fire Department are installing free smoke alarms in the homes of Old Town residents. This program is sponsored by the Red Cross with assistance of a grant from Emera Maine. There are no income limitations.
If you live in Old Town, you can sign up for a free home visit by contacting Ron Springel at 874-1192, extension 113. A volunteer fire safety team will come to your home and install free smoke alarms and help you create an emergency escape plan. Remember – smoke alarms reduce your chances of perishing in a house fire by 50%
Stay tuned for additional Red Cross smoke alarm programs in other areas. The program is sponsored by the Maine Home Fire Campaign of the American Red Cross.
