Sound the Alarm kicks off in Northern Ohio and Southeast Michigan

Volunteers and partners work to make homes safer and save lives

The 2022 Sound the Alarm campaign is in full swing in the American Red Cross Northern Ohio Region. Home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events took place on Saturday, May 7 in Fostoria, Ohio and Monroe, Michigan – which is part of the Northern Ohio Region.

35 volunteers helped make three-dozen homes safer in both communities, by installing nearly 90 free smoke alarms and sharing valuable home fire safety information with residents.

Additional Sound the Alarm events will be taking place in the next few weeks in Cleveland’s Collinwood and Old Brooklyn neighborhoods, Garfield Heights, Akron, Lorain, Wooster Township, Chippewa Township, and Napoleon, Ohio.
