OKLAHOMA CITY -

The American Red Cross announced plans for a new campaign in Oklahoma to reduce death and injury by home fires by as much as 25% over the next five years.

The campaign will focus on smoke alarms in neighborhoods with historically high number of home fires. Volunteers will go door-to-door to install smoke alarms in homes that need them. They also plan to talk with residents about creating an escape plan if a fire starts in their home.

Volunteers plan to canvass south Oklahoma City on Oct. 25. Volunteers with Santa Maria Virgen Episcopal Church and the Oklahoma City Fire Department will help with that event.

On Nov. 8, volunteers will team up with Earlboro Fire Department to canvass neighborhoods in Earlsboro.

Then on Dec. 6 in Norman, volunteers will work with the Norman Fire Department to canvass neighborhoods in Norman.

The Red Cross held a similar event in Norman on Sept. 6 and installed more than two dozen smoke detectors and held more than 100 fire-prevention conversations.
