American Red Cross: Smoke Alarms Save Lives!
American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign
Protect your family from Home Fires!
The American Red Cross Home Fire Campaign aims to help reduce the number of home fire-related injuries and fatalities. The Red Cross is partnering with municipalities, fire departments and community groups to help families be better prepared for and take important steps to prevent home fires.
Free Smoke Alarm Installations
The Red Cross and our community partners will be installing free smoke alarms in your neighborhood to help keep you and your family safe.
To schedule an appointment for a Home Fire Safety Visit to have FREE smoke alarms installed in your home, visit redcross.org/NJsmokealarms. Every eight minutes, the Red Cross responds to a Home Fire.
People can take easy steps to increase their chances of surviving a fire.
- Make an escape plan.
- Make sure you have working smoke alarms in your home.
- Practice fire drills and then check your escape time.
We want to help you, your family and our community stay safe. Remember to test your smoke alarms monthly and practice your fire escape plan. For more information, visit redcross.org/NJ.

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston.
I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan.
I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
