After being trained by the Red Cross, volunteers will be organized into teams of 3 and given an area to walk through. Each team will install the detector, talk about an escape plan with the homeowner and fill out a little bit of paperwork.  The Red Cross will provide lunch.  Wear comfortable clothing and shoes.
