Fire Prevention Week Begins

Posted by on Saturday, October 8, 2016

Sunday marks the beginning of Fire Prevention Week in Canada. It runs from October 9 to October 15.

The theme for this year is Don’t Wait – Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years. 

Fire Prevention Canada is the national voice of fire prevention education.

At work and at home do you know your Fire Department’s emergency number? Your fire escape plan? Your designated meeting place in the event of a fire? If not find out.

Have a fire escape plan.

Statistics reveal that 78 percent of deaths from fire occur in the home, with most of the fatalities taking place between 2 am and 4 am, while occupants are asleep.
