Red Cross and Hot Springs Fire Department to install free smoke alarms in homes



Little Rock, Arkansas – On Thursday, the Hot Springs Police Department and the Red Cross serving Greater Arkansas made an announcement about installing free smoke alarms for area households.

The free installations are a part of the Hot Springs Sound the Alarm home fire safety event, which will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 25.
