FIRE PREVENTION WEEK
OCTOBER 5-11, 2008
“PREVENT HOME FIRES”
A pot holder too close to a lit burner or a space heater left on overnight could be all it takes to start a home fire. In fact, cooking and heating are among the leading causes of home fires in the province of Ontario.
This year’s theme, “It’s Fire Prevention Week – Prevent Home Fires,” addresses the leading causes of home fires in Ontario - cooking, heating equipment, electrical equipment, cigarettes, candles and matches and lighters. Additionally, we must not forget to educate residents on why working smoke alarms and a home fire escape plan are essential toward ensuring everyone gets out safely in case of fire.
