Red Cross seeks volunteers for Sound the Alarm event in Knoxville

The Red Cross wants to end these tragedies and save lives, the reason why the organization launched the Home Fire Campaign in 2014.

Red Cross volunteers along with local partners will be canvassing the Beaumont, Park City and Park Ridge neighborhoods in Knoxville, installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms and helping families create escape plans.

"Nationwide, we are looking to install more than 100,000 free smoke alarms and in New Jersey we are looking to install at least 3,000, but we are looking for more", says Concannon.

On Monday two children lost their lives during a house fire in Merced and although it is unknown if the home had a working alarm, authorities say this incident is a wake up call for everyone.

The home fire safety and smoke alarm installation event will take place May 5 in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Newport News and Portsmouth.

Global wine production drops to historic low
Argentina, the world's sixth-biggest producer, will see its production rise 14.2 percent to 13.5 million hl. Production fell 21% in Italy, 18% in France and 15% in Spain, according to the Commission.

Right now, the Utah Red Cross is rounding up volunteers to help kick off the "Sound the Alarm" event happening this weekend.

The Red Cross responds to almost 64,000 disasters a year, the majority of which are home fires.

Across the country, the Campaign is making a difference.

Fire experts estimate that a person has less than two minutes to get out of a building safely when there's fire.

"During the year if you contact our office we actually will send a firefighter out to make sure that the detector gets in.", says Michael Meyers who is the Public Information Officer at Augusta Fire Department.
