Montana Red Cross to Partner with Church of LDS to install free smoke alarms

BILLINGS, MONTANA, September 16, 2019 — The Montana Red Cross is partnering with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during its Day of Service to install free smoke alarms in Billings homes.

On Sept. 21, the Red Cross, church members and community volunteers will go door-to-door installing free smoke alarms and teaching families about fire safety. The event will run from 8:45 a.m. to noon and will start at the LDS church, 3595 Monad Road.

“Every day, seven people lose their lives in home fires across this country – often because they don’t have working smoke alarms and a plan how to escape safely during a home fire,” said Abbra Firman, Red Cross disaster program manager in eastern Montana. “We look forward to working with our partners and volunteers to make these Billings homes safer.”
