PITTSFIELD, Mass. – Homeowners in the City of Pittsfield and throughout Berkshire County are eligible for free smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, thanks to a partnership between Age Friendly Berkshires and the American Red Cross for the Home Fires Campaign.

The campaign’s aim is to decrease the number of deaths and injuries caused by home fires. All homeowners in Berkshire County are eligible, regardless of age or income. The Red Cross will install up to three 10-year sealed smoke alarms and one carbon monoxide alarm per home at no cost.
