  • 1 person is interested

On October 2, 2021 the Arizona Burn Foundation is partnering with the Tucson Fire Department to educate the community, reduce the risk of house fires, and save lives! With your help, we are installing free smoke alarms in low-income, high-risk homes. Below is the information:

Date: Saturday, October 2, 2021

Time: 8:00am - 12:00pm

Targeted neighborhood: Barrio Hollywood area (Exact meeting location is TBD)

We hope to reach 400 homes with this event, so we need volunteers to help make this happen! We will provide all the necessary tools and training the morning of the walk, so you are ready to do the installs. This is a great event that helps communities in need while potentially saves lives. It is also a great way to meet and network with others that truly care about giving back!

Volunteers can sign up at https://azburn.org/advocacy-and-education/community-smoke-alarm/ Click on the "Apply To Volunteer" button and find the event on the calendar. If you are a new volunteer, create an account to RSVP.

All volunteers will be required to wear a mask for the entirety of the event. Vaccines are strongly recommended and preferred, but not required.

If you need more information or have any questions, please reach out!
