Free Smoke Alarm Installation!

The American Red Cross has launched a national campaign to reduce the number of fire deaths and injuries by 25% over the next five years.

  • Fire related deaths and injuries are highest in homes without smoke alarms.
  • Last year the Red Cross responded to nearly two home fires each day in the Cascades Region.
  • More than 60% of fire deaths occur in homes without a working smoke alarm.
  • Fire experts agree that people may have as little as 2 minutes to escape a burning home before it's too late to get out.

You can get a FREE smoke alarm installed by a trained Red Cross volunteer, by calling:  (503) 528-5783 or by sending an email to
