The American Red Cross is teaming up with the Rockford Fire Department today to make sure we all have working smoke detectors.

Smoke detectors, you know you have them, but do you know if they are in working order?

Today is the day you will be able to find out, with very helpful Rockfordians.

The Rockford Fire Department and the American Red Cross are working together today to make sure that Rockford residents are prepared in case of a fire in their homes.

Teams of Firefighters and Red Cross members will be checking homes today for working smoke detectors.

If they come across a house that does not have a smoke detector, or the detector is not working, they will install a new one absolutely free.
