Home fires claim seven lives every day, but you can help change that. Join other Yale alums for a local Sound the Alarm event in Cleveland's Edgewater neighborhood, sponsored by the American Red Cross of Northern Ohio, in partnership with the Cleveland Fire Department, to visit homes close to the Louisa May Alcott Elementary School to educate residents on fire safety and install smoke detectors where needed.
Parking should be available at the school at 10308 Baltic Road, between W. 103rd and W. 104th Streets, where teams will gather prior to the event start at 9:30 a.m.
No prior experience is necessary; the Red Cross and its Fire Department partners will provide all the training needed. Young people age 13-17 are welcome to participate with parental/guardian consent, but those age 13, 14 or 15 will also need the parent or guardian to be with them at the event.
This event will be held rain or shine on Saturday, April 22, 2023.
