The Red Cross and its partners are pleased to offer free smoke alarm installations and education sessions on home fire safety for residents of the Cascades Region.
This spring, join our national movement and pledge to keep your family safe by taking 2 simple steps: Practice your 2-minute escape drill and test your smoke alarms monthly.
During an out-of-the-blue phone call, Denine, a volunteer with the Red Cross in Wallowa County, Oregon, received a heartfelt thank you from a woman named Chris. Chris explained to Denine that a few nights earlier she was roused from a deep sleep by the piercing squeal of a smoke alarm – one fresh from the packaging and installed just a few months earlier by Red Cross volunteers.
Engage your organization to help implement fire safety programs in your community.
Prepare, respond and help families recover from home fires.
1. The Red Cross and its partners can test existing smoke alarms and install up to three free smoke alarms for those that need them.
2. The Cascades Region will provide installation services in the Cascades region only. Requests will be fulfilled as resources allow, with priority given to requests during National Sound the Alarm events. If you live outside of this area and would like to identify your local region office, please visit Redcross.org (or call 1-800-REDCROSS).
3. If you are able to purchase and install your own smoke alarm but would like information on home fire safety and smoke alarm installation, please visit Redcross.org/fire.
