MOHAWK — The American Red Cross Sound the Alarm — Save a Life fire safety program scheduled this fall in the village of Mohawk has been postponed due to need for the Red Cross to focus on its disaster relief efforts to assist hurricane victims in Texas and Florida and other hard-hit areas.

The event will be rescheduled for the spring, according to Adam Hohl, disaster program manager for the American Red Cross.

The Mohawk village office has a list of those who have signed up to receive free smoke alarms through the program and will save it for use in the spring, said Mayor James Baron.

If others call in their names will be added to the list as well, he said.

The American Red Cross will team up with fire departments, volunteers and partners in various communities for the program. Volunteers will install free smoke alarms in more than 100 at-risk communities across the country. For more information, visit
