Fire Prevention & Public Education

Everyone has the responsibility to keep their families and homes safe from fire.
The best ways to do this are to:

  • Prevent fires from starting
  • Maintain working carbon monoxide and smoke alarms on every story of your home and outside all sleeping areas to have as much time to safely escape as possible. Not only do smoke alarms save lives, they are required by law
  • Plan and practice a home fire escape plan so everyone in the home knows exactly what to do should the smoke alarms sound in an emergency

Fire Escape Planning

When a fire occurs, there is no time to waste. That is why it is so important to sit down with your family today and make a step-by-step plan for escaping from a fire.

Carbon Monoxide & Smoke Alarms

Carbon monoxide (CO) is called the “silent killer” because you can’t see, smell or taste it. And it is deadly! CO is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in North America. Each year it proves fatal for dozens of Canadians, and, makes many more thousands sick with what they think is the flu.

IT’S THE LAW


Every home in Ontario must have a working smoke and carbon monoxide alarm on every storey and outside all sleeping areas.
