City residents will have the opportunity to get a new smoke detector installed for FREE April 27, 2019 as New Haven firefighters and officials team up with the Red Cross for the annual Sound The Alarm campaign in Connecticut.

The rationale for the effort is simple, Mayor Toni Harp and Fire Chief John Alston said: smoke detectors help save lives.

“I’m so proud of all the city’s first responders, and their partnerships with agencies like the Red Cross. I’m so grateful for the help you provide — the help is most desperately needed. The motivation behind this initiative is a firm belief that the best and most effective way to fight a house fire is to prevent it in the first place.”
– Mayor Toni Harp

“We want you to understand the importance of these alarms being posted in your homes. Early detection — and early alarms — save lives.”
– Fire Chief John Alston

Approximately 300 volunteers, as well as city firefighters and other officials, will be out in the community installing smoke detectors Saturday, according to Harp and Mario Bruno, CEO of the American Red Cross in Connecticut and Rhode Island.

You can also have your homes inspected for fire safety.
