Let’s DO this! Sounding the Alarm in Akron!

by: Mary Williams, Communications Staff Member

Nearly 25 Red Cross workers hit the streets of Akron to help Sound the Alarm to end home fires.

The first Sound the Alarm event held in Akron, eight teams traveled to prearranged homes in all points of the city, while another group dropped off flyers for the May 5th event at homes in west Akron.

All told, volunteers and staff member helped make 45 homes safer, installing 123 alarms.
