    Sound the alarm, save a life

    March 28, 2018 / By UNY Communications

    A house fire can start at any time in any home. The Upper New York Mission Central HUB, with the help of Volunteers in Mission (VIM) and Early Response Team (ERT), is working with the American Red Cross to help install free smoke alarms where needed.

    In UNY, more than 500 alarms are available and will be installed in the Central New York area on Saturday, May 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The UNY Mission Central HUB is seeking between 15 and 20 volunteers to work in teams of two. There will be a gathering point, to be announced closer to the work date of May 12, where the list of addresses will be handed out and the smoke detectors as well. For more information or to volunteer to help, contact Mike Block, Director of Missional Engagement, at mikeblock@unyumc.org.
