New Bremen-German Township and Chickasaw Fire Department, along with Nidec-Minster are partnering with the American Red Cross for the 'Sound the Alarm' community outreach program. 

Sound the Alarm is a series of home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events across the country. Together with fire departments and other community partners, volunteers will:

  • Install free smoke alarms
  • Replace batteries in existing alarms
  • Provide fire prevention and safety education

On Friday, May 11th volunteers of this outreach program will be going door-to-door in New Bremen to offer to install free smoke alarms.  If residents are not home, a door hanger will be left on their door.  The door hanger will provide information on how to obtain the free safety kit.  New Bremen-German Township firefighters will be available on Saturday, May 19th to install any smoke alarms that may have been missed during the May 11th door-to-door effort.
