It is a proven fact that most fires are preventable. Yet, countless fire deaths and injuries still occur every year in Ontario.
Most fatal fires occur at night when people are asleep. Subsequent fire investigations reveal that in many of these fatal fires, there were no smoke alarms installed or the batteries were removed from smoke alarms.
When working smoke alarms are installed on every level of your home and outside the sleeping area, your chances of surviving a fire significantly increase. For added protection install smoke alarms in every bedroom. A smoke alarm can detect smoke from a fire which will alert occupants, giving them time to escape.
