If you live in the Quad Cities, you have the opportunity to get free smoke detectors installed in your home.

“Sound The Alarm” is a one-day event sponsored by WQAD News 8 where the American Red Cross and local volunteers help people in the community get the fire-safety equipment they need.

Wednesday, March 20 is registration day.  You can go online at WQAD to sign up for your free smoke detectors.  If you already have smoke detectors, you can sign up for free battery replacements according to a story from WQAD.

The Red Cross is offering up to three smoke detector installations per household.  Installation day is May 4.

You can  sign up to volunteer for the “Sound The Alarm” campaign here.

WQAD says you can register on Wednesday, March 20, between 5 a.m. and 7 p.m.  All you have to do is call.

In 2018, the QC’s local chapter of the Red Cross installed 700 smoke detectors into 500 homes.
