Homes without smoke detectors in Annapolis and Londontowne will get free smoke detectors Saturday.

The American Red Cross of Southern Maryland, along with Annapolis Mayor Michael Pantelides, Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh, Jan Holt of Chaney Enterprises and other volunteers will install the alarms in homes that need them and hand out educational materials.

The Home Fire Campaign is a national Red Cross initiative designed to reduce the number of home fire deaths and injuries across the county.

Twelve people died in fires last year in Anne Arundel County, making it one of the deadliest years in recent memory.
