Every day an average of seven people die in home fires in the United States. To help prevent such deaths, the Arizona Burn Foundation, local fire departments, and the American Red Cross will install free smoke alarms in Valley homes and help residents map fire escape routes.
In the West and Northwest valleys, they will visit on
Saturday, Nov. 6: Canada Village Park, 18074 W. Lynwood Street, Goodyear. And on Saturday, Nov. 13: Pine Shadows Trailer Park, 7300 N. 51st Avenue, Glendale.
Volunteers will go door to door in the neighborhood surrounding the meeting areas identified as having a high risk for home fire-related injuries and fatalities. They will install smoke alarms and educate the residents about home fire preparedness. Residents will learn about fire safety, including cooking and heating tips and the need to create and practice a fire escape plan.
