The Red Cross of Northern Nevada is looking for volunteers to install smoke detectors and hand out fire-safety information on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s Day of Service.

Volunteers will meet at Silverada Estates, 2301 Oddie Boulevard, on January 18 at 9 am.

Volunteers will visit with Silverada Estates residents and offer to install free smoke detectors if there isn’t a working smoke detector installed already in the home.

“We want to honor Dr. King’s legacy of doing what’s right for the community,” said Red Cross Executive Director Zanny Marsh. “Our goal is to make northern Nevada a better, safer place to live. Smoke detectors save lives, and we want everyone to have an equal shot at escaping a home fire alive.”

To volunteer for this event, contact [email protected] or call 775-856-1000.
