Golden Bridges partners with Red Cross to install smoke detectors free of charge

Golden Bridges

QUINCY — Golden Bridges has begun a partnership with the Adams County Red Cross to provide the labor to install in-home smoke detectors in the Adams County area.

T Heberlein, who recently joined the staff of Golden Bridges, has worked with the program in the past and will reunite with personnel at the Adams County Red Cross to provide a needed service.

In a press release, Heberlein said, “I have had the privilege of installing approximately 1,200 smoke alarms for the Red Cross in close to 400 homes here in the Quincy area during the last eight years. It is such a good feeling that I can leave a home and know that they are a little safer than when I arrived.”

The American Red Cross states that every day, seven people die in home fires, most often in homes without working smoke alarms. That’s why the American Red Cross launched its Home Fire Campaign in 2014. Sound the Alarm is a critical part of the Red Cross campaign. Through home visits, they’ve installed more than 2.5 million free smoke alarms and made more than 1 million households safer across the country.
