Sound the Alarm
The Southern Tier Chapter of the American Red Cross is participating in a program to “Sound the Alarm” against home fires with the installation of free smoke alarms.
Fall Back
In addition to remembering to turn clocks back one hour for Standard Time before going to bed November 5, people should change the batteries in smoke detectors, vacuum the units and test them.
Rapid Response
Southern Tier Chapter of the American Red Cross says it responded to six multi-family fires and four single family fires involving 28 people since February 1.
No Smoke Detectors
Binghamton fire officials say a South Side man may be lucky to have only suffered some minor smoke inhalation during a fire at Earle Drive February 4 since the home did not have any working smoke detectors.
