Close to 200 American Red Cross and United Way of the Capital Region Day of Caring volunteers will join forces with the Harrisburg Bureau of Fire to install 1,000 free smoke detectors and educate residents on the importance of home fire preparedness. These free smoke detectors are part of the Red Cross’ effort to reduce the number of home fire injuries and fatalities by 25% over a five year period.
“The Red Cross is excited to be partnering with the United Way of the Capital Region and the Harrisburg Bureau of Fire in our effort to educate residents on the importance of home fire safety. It’s great to see so many volunteers working together in the community to help us reach our goal of 1,000 smoke detectors installed on this one day alone.”
Volunteers participating in the smoke detector install event as part of the United Way Day of Caring represent UGI, PinnacleHealth, and Phoenix Contact.
