Fire Prevention Week is October 5 – 11, 2014. This year’s theme is Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!
Ontario law requires that working smoke alarms be located on every storey of the home and outside all sleeping areas.
Your safety is your responsibility. Only working smoke alarms save lives. In fact, smoke alarms can increase your chances of surviving a fire by up to 50%!
Make sure you:
New 2014 Fire Prevention Week resources are available to assist fire departments in their local Fire Prevention Week campaigns.
Fire departments can also enhance their Fire Prevention Week campaigns and educational activities with promotional kits available for purchase from the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council website.
