Would you accept an offer of a Free Smoke Alarm?

When I first learned about the Home Fire Preparedness Campaign, i had no idea what it was.  Some days later, someone told me.  This a campaign to install smoke alarms in low-income neighborhoods throughout the Sacramento area.  It has the ability to not only save property, but lives as well.  However, this was not always the case.  This happened years ago while we were living in the Philippines.  We had a very minor fire that caused no damage, but the fire department was called as a precaution.  I kept saying, “what if this had happened while we were all sleeping.”  This would have been an entirely different matter.  The American Red Cross was available at the time, but no one though of them as they do today.  If given the opportunity, the Red Cross will definitely help.

The Home Fire Preparedness Campaign begins on Saturday December 5, 2015.  There will be notifications delivered door-to-door the day before.  I hope everyone accepts this generous offer without reservations.
