In celebration of MLK Day, the Red Cross will be in the Boise and Eliot neighborhoods on January 14 checking and installing free smoke alarms!
The #1 disaster threat to homes and families in the U.S. is home fire. An average of 7 people die every day because of home fires and more than 60% of those deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms. Alarms more than 10 years old may not function properly, even with new batteries.
There are three ways to sign up for your free smoke alarm installation:
- Visit redcross.org/PortlandDayofService
- Email email@example.com
- Call 503-528-5783
Interested in volunteering? Join the Red Cross on the Saturday before MLK Day and volunteer to install 1000 smoke alarms in homes that need them.
