"Don't Wait Check the Date."
Fire Prevention Week is October 9th - 15th, 2016
Every year, Fire Departments across Ontario Hold "Fire Prevention Week" the 1st week in October. During this week, Ontario Fire Departments host an open house that welcomes their community to visit and enjoy an informative learning opportunity for children and adults. In addition, October is recognized as "Fire Prevention Month”. Although we promote fire and life safety year-round, October is targeted as the time frame to extend our efforts to put emphasis on a target message designated by the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association). For instance, 2011 was: "Smoke alarms, a sound you can live with” , 2012 was: "Have two ways out, be rabbit ready", 2013 was: "Get cooking with fire safety", 2014 was: "Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month", 2015 was "Hear the Beep Where You Sleep!", and 2016 is "Don't Wait Check the Date".
If you would like further information on our open house, please feel free to email one of our Fire Prevention Officers/Public Educators; Shelley Langer and Nairn Robertson or stay up to date through our Facebook page.
