Nearly 200 Red Cross volunteers handed out smoke alarms and helped educate Lexington residents on fire safety Saturday, all part of the Red Cross Sound the Alarm campaign.
|It was all hands on deck Saturday as volunteers received marching orders for the |
Lexington Sound the Alarm campaign for the Red Cross.
One volunteer team heard what many of the volunteers and fire fighters would hear in the course of the busy day.
“I’ve lived in this house for 17 years and have never known if the smoke alarms were working or not,” said Ms. June Jones when volunteers installed two smoke alarms in her northside home.
The team visiting Ms. Jones included Manny Mora, Kevin Lum, Rosie Gray and team captain Kathy Hoff. Ms. Hoff has been a Red Cross volunteers for 49 years!
