On March 4, the Rotary Club of Milwaukie partnered with Clackamas Fire to purchase and install smoke alarms in another local smoke-alarm-installation campaign.
Milwaukie Rotarians installed 30 devices for residents of the 55 and older Nez Perce Mobile Community, 10550 S.E. 70th Ave. The manufactured-home park with 20 buildings is located near King Road, just east of the current Milwaukie city limits.
On the day of the event, Rotary Club members invited residents of the mobile home park to test their smoke detectors. If the residents lacked a working smoke alarm, the Rotarians installed them in their homes at no cost to the residents.
The Rotary Club of Milwaukie schedules two such campaigns a year for residential communities that Clackamas Fire identifies as candidates for the service project.
