Rockport Fire department helps Red Cross with campaign

The Rockport, Maine Fire Department has teamed up with the American Red Cross to help teach fire preparedness and safety skills in its community. According to a recent press release, beginning on August 25 through the end of September, Rockport residents will be able to request free smoke alarms. To do this, all they need to do is visit the Maine subpage of the Red Cross website at redcross.org/me, and access the Home Fire Preparedness section.

Everyone qualifies for the program regardless of income, and residents can requests as many smoke detectors as their home needs. The detectors being given out will last for 10 years, and will be installed by Red Cross volunteers and employees after a brief survey of your home. As part of the survey, home-owners will also be given information on home fire safety, as well as general emergency preparedness.

According to the Rockport fire chief, members of the fire department are also willing to come to your home, help you install your new smoke alarms, and give you general fire safety tips for your house.
