The Chanhassen Fire Department alerts residents to the product recall of the Kidde brand smoke detector alarm.

The alarms are free and are provided by the American Red Cross. The Red Cross Home Fire Campaign is making a difference by having installed over one million smoke alarms across the nation. Between now and May 13th, the Red Cross, along the help with volunteers and fire departments, they will be installing alarms in 100 cities.

They routinely provide assistance to those who reach out with questions or concerns, and to those who need help installing a smoke detector.
