Smoke Alarm Blitz 2017
The American Red Cross along with The Wayne Township and Speedway Fire departments come together to do a Smoke Alarm Blitz throughout many different neighborhoods on the west side of Indianapolis.
SERVPRO of Indianapolis West is a proud partner with the Wayne Township Victim Assistance Program. Each year we're invited to help to ensure residents have working smoke alarms in their homes by doing what's called a "Smoke Alarm Blitz."
Here's how it works:
The local fire department mails all of the homeowners in a particular area a letter stating that Fire Department Officials and volunteers will be walking the neighborhood going door to door asking homeowners if they would like for us to test their smoke alarms. If we find that an alarm doesn't work properly or if an area needed one, we would install up to two brand new smoke alarms free of charge.
It was a great feeling knowing that we found several homes that needed smoke alarms and that they now have brand new ones to alert them if a fire was to break out in their house.
This picture was taken right after we checked the Heatherwood area on the west side of Indy. That's Rick with SERVPRO of Indianapolis West on the right and Andy Harris the Wayne Township Trustee on the left. In between us are Cory and John, a couple of great and hard working guys from the local high school that volunteered to help. It was a great success and we're so very happy to help each year.
