Red Cross providing, installing smoke alarms for free

Posted: Updated:

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – The American Red Cross of Eastern Missouri is providing and installing free smoke alarms for families who request them.

The organization said families in the St. Louis area who do not have working smoke alarms should call them at 314-516-2797 to make an appointment to have them installed.

Residents who call will be asked to leave their name, contact information and the best time they can be reached. A local volunteer will then call them back and set an appointment.

The Red Cross advises families to install working smoke alarms, create an escape plan with two routes from every room and to practice the escape plan twice a year.
