A local scout is doing his part to help keep citizens safe.

Adrian Avila, a freshman at Randall High School,  is teaming up with the Amarillo Fire Department and the American Red Cross to help install between 150 and 300 smoke detectors in homes in the San Jacinto neighborhood.

 Avila talks about the project. 

The group will start working at 11 am on Saturday, October 26th.

San Jacinto residents that would like to have a Smoke Alarm installed in their home can call the American Red Cross at 806-376-6300.
