We will be canvassing the University Park neighborhood and installing free smoke alarms to make our neighbors’ homes and our community safer.

WHO: Charlotte Metro Chapter of the American Red Cross with our partners, Piedmont Natural Gas and Charlotte Fire Department

NOTE: Following the kickoff press conference, media are invited to join the Red Cross and our volunteer partners as we reach out to households in the neighborhood to replace smoke alarm batteries or install new smoke alarms, complete fire safety checklists and help families develop a fire escape plan. Please RSVP to so we may plan accordingly.
