Join us on Indy DO Day! As part of the smoke alarm installation team, volunteers will canvas pre-identified neighborhoods that are at-risk for home fires and assess the condition of working smoke alarms, and install new smoke alarms if needed. Each team will have a member from either the Indianapolis Department of Public Safety or an Indianapolis firefighter to help with the installations. Volunteers will meet at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Canvassing will be in three focus areas: Martin Luther King and 29th Street, 16th and Tibbs, and New York and Sherman Drive. 

Installation training will take place prior to canvassing. If you have them, we are in need of these items for installation teams during the event:
- A power drill with phillips head screwdriver bit (needed to place screws into walls);
- A small ladder (4 foot step ladder is ideal); and
- A clipboard
