The Red Cross and our partners have a goal to install 100,000 free smoke alarms nationwide in April and May in over 100 cities across the country. In the Cascades Region, our Sound the Alarm. Save A Life. events are open to any volunteers who are interested in helping install free smoke alarms at no cost to our community, as well as provide fire safety and disaster preparedness education during the installation. All necessary training, tools and lunch will be provided to those in attendance. Feel free to bring along friends, family, co-workers, or anyone else that is interested in helping this life-saving activity.

There are a variety of ways to help at this event. Please see below for a general description of these options and indicate any preference you have in terms of how you'd like to help us on the day of the event.
