The American Red Cross and its partners have launched an initiative that aims to reduce deaths and injuries caused by home fires by 25% in five years with the Home Fire Campaign.

The Red Cross is asking every household in America to join us in taking two simple steps that can save lives:

  1. checking or installing smoke alarms, and
  2. practicing fire drills at home

Do you live in the Northwest Region and need an alarm?

We are asking you to join us in this nationwide public initiative that aims to reduce the number of fire deaths and injuries in the U.S. by 25 percent within five years.

We will be canvassing neighborhoods in need and installing smoke alarms free of charge. Contact your local Red Cross office to learn more about volunteer opportunities.

  1. Do you volunteer to install batters in existing smoke alarms? I am writing a newsletter for our community and would like to include this information – if it is true.

    1. Hi Sheryl. Yes, we can replace batteries as well. Also, because alarms have an expiration date, we often will remove an old alarm and replace with a new, 10-yr alarm with a self-contained battery (no need to replace the battery).

    1. Hi Judy. Yes! Since July, we’ve conducted more than 400 free installations in homes on the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas. To sign up or for more information visit or call your local chapter (Bremerton) (360) 377-3761.

  2. Hi Mike. Yes, we do have a scheduled smoke alarm installation event Oct 7 at Glenwood Mobile Estates. We provide free in-home installations and education, typically on the weekends in neighborhoods. For more info, you can call the Everett office at (425) 252-4103. Thanks – Colin

    1. I’m very sorry to hear this news. Your friend’s daughter can reach a Red Cross disaster services caseworker by calling the local office. In what city did the fire occur?

  4. The content inside the website is interesting and useful, but the volume of content is high and the loading speed of the pages is a bit slow.
    Overall I am satisfied with your website
    Good luck
