Volunteers installed smoke detectors in homes throughout Gary’s Aetna neighborhood last weekend.. an effort partnered by Fire Department and the American Red Cross. Penelope Love founded the “Sound the Alarm, Save a Life” initiative eight years ago in the community, following the Red Cross’s national efforts and she wants to extend it to all Gary neighborhoods
