Chandler firefighters seek volunteers to help walk neighborhood on Oct. 8 to install smoke alarms and promote fire prevention and safety
 
Smoke Detectors Save LivesOn Saturday, Oct. 8, 2016, a group of Chandler firefighters will join with volunteers from the community to walk door-to-door in local neighborhoods and install free smoke alarms in homes that need them, as well as provide educational information on fire safety to residents. Volunteers are needed for the Community Smoke Alarm Installation program, which is a great team building opportunity for businesses and organizations.
 
The program is a collaborative effort among the Chandler Fire, Health & Medical Department, Arizona Burn Foundation, American Red Cross, and several other East Valley fire departments. Select neighborhoods in Chandler, Gilbert, Tempe and Mesa have been notified that they will be visited by teams of three people who will offer to install free smoke alarms
 
Volunteers are needed from 8 a.m. to noon. No experience is necessary and all training, tools and materials are provided that day. Both installers and record keepers are needed. By investing four hours of time, they will have fun and perhaps save lives by providing homes with working smoke alarms.
 
To make a difference in your community, register online at http://azburn.org/events/community-smoke-alarm-installation-events/ . Select the Chandler event on Oct. 8 and sign-up. Once you have registered, the event details will be sent to you, including the location to meet that morning and what you can expect. If you have any questions, you can call the Arizona Burn Foundation at 602-230-2041, ext. 104.
