Free fire alarms are being made available to homeowners in Bell County through the American Red Cross’s program “Sound the Alarm, Save a Life.” Red Cross volunteer Melissa McGill delivered fire alarms to the Middlesboro Fire Department and explained to fire department representatives the importance of the program throughout the United States.
