That’s why the organization is installing free smoke alarms to anyone who requests them as part of the organization’s Home Fire Campaign.

Those who need a smoke alarm can call the hotline 801-323-7022 to schedule an appointment. Calls will be taken in both English and Spanish.

While at the home, Red Cross volunteers will also help residents draft a home fire evacuation plan. The Red Cross will install up to the alarms as needed while checking any current alarms that may need batteries or a replacement.
