Every day, seven people die in home fires and the Red Cross wants to do everything we can to prevent these needless tragedies. Volunteers work alongside fire departments and other local groups, canvassing at-risk neighborhoods to install free smoke alarms, replace batteries in existing alarms, educate families about fire prevention and safety, and fund-raise for this lifesaving mission.ā€ Click here for SOUND THE ALARM WEBSITE The new Lion's club in Plymouth is setting up a table next to the Red Cross Canteen.
