Fire Prevention Education and Resources

The following resources about about how and why fires start, what you can do to prevent fires, how to avoid injuries and how to stay safe from fire and other related hazards are available for use in your community.

It Starts with You

Only working smoke alarms give you the early warning you need to safely escape a fire. Install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in your home. Test them at least one a month and replace the battery once per year.

Practise a home escape plan so everyone in your home knows what to do when the smoke or carbon monoxide alarm sounds in an emergency.
