CHANDLER, Ariz. – On Saturday, April 6, Chandler firefighters will join with volunteers from the community to walk door to door through Chandler neighborhoods near Arizona Avenue and Ray Road to install free smoke alarms in homes that need them, as well as provide educational information on fire safety to residents. The Community Smoke Alarm Program is a great team building opportunity for volunteers from local businesses and organizations.

The program is a collaborative effort between the Chandler Fire Department, the Arizona Burn Foundation, American Red Cross and several other East Valley fire departments. Select neighborhoods in Chandler, Tempe and Mesa have been notified that they will be visited by teams of three people who will offer to install free smoke alarms.

Volunteers are needed from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. No experience is necessary, and all training, tools and materials will be provided that day. Both installers and record keepers are needed.

To make a difference in your community, register online at the Arizona Burn Foundation Community Smoke Alarm Program.

Select the Chandler event on April 6 and sign up. Once you have registered, the event details will be sent to you, including the location to meet that morning and what you can expect.
