Smoke alarm event

The local chapter of the American Red Cross has been asked to do a free smoke alarm event by the Sipe family in Mount Gilead, supported by the Mount Gilead Fire Department.

The Red Cross will be installing free 10-year alarms by appointment. If your alarm is close to 10 years old or you have no clue how old it is, please call 1-844-207-4509 to schedule an appointment.

The chemical that detects smoke dies at about 10 years. Even if it is hard wired or has a new battery, it may not work. The process takes less than 20 minutes, and the new alarm has a 10-year battery that doesn’t need and cannot be changed.

In 10 years, the Red Cross will notify you that it is time to do it again, for free.
