Apart from these installation events, Yoke’s Fresh Market partners with the Red Cross on April 23 between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. There will be a team of Red Cross volunteers at three locations from Yoke to Spokane in Airway Heights, North Foothills and Sprague, to help register people for smoke alarm installation and provide safety information – house fire.

Local fire departments will also be in stores to help facilitate.

Since its inception in 2014, the HFC and its partners have installed more than 2.3 million alarms across the country.

This year, according to the Red Cross, their national goal is to install 50,000 alarms during the three-week initiative period from May 1-22.
