Sound the Alarm
Red Cross, INDYCAR, IMS To Install Free Smoke Alarms in Speedway

Volunteers, members of the American Red Cross-Indiana Region and INDYCAR/Indianapolis Motor Speedway staff and selected NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers will install free smoke alarms for families in Speedway, Indiana, vulnerable to home fires during a “Sound the Alarm” event on Saturday, April 23.

This effort is part of a national Red Cross “Sound the Alarm” initiative to install 50,000 free smoke alarms in more than 50 at-risk communities across the country in May.

This work is made possible thanks to generous financial donations from regional partners:

· Allied Solutions

· Anthem Foundation

· Eskenazi Health

· United Way of Central Indiana

· Indianapolis Motor Speedway


· United Way of Northwest Indiana

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides comfort to victims of disasters; supplies about 40% of the nation's blood; teaches skills that save lives; distributes international humanitarian aid; and supports veterans, military members and their families. The Red Cross is a nonprofit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to deliver its mission.
