Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,C,I,Ref-East Northport) joined the Red Cross, local fire departments, IBEW Local – Hauppauge, and volunteers for their “Sound the Alarm” program, which provides free smoke alarms and installation to local residents.
Since house fires continue to be a major issue across the country, Raia has been working with groups like the Red Cross to ensure that every household is prepared for a fire emergency.
“It’s always devastating to see a family lose everything to a house fire,” said Raia. “However, nothing is more valuable than the lives that could be lost, which is why I want to do whatever I can to help ensure our friends and neighbors are ready in case disaster strikes. Programs such as the “Sound the Alarm” initiative can save lives, and I am proud to join the Red Cross in promoting fire safety.”

Assemblyman Raia represents the 12th Assembly District, which includes parts of Huntington, Babylon and Islip in Suffolk County
