Importance


Working smoke alarms provide the earliest warning of a fire in the home and give residents the necessary time to evacuate safely.

Story behind the numbers


Many homeowners, who because of age, physical limitations or affordability have difficulty in purchasing and installing smoke alarms in their home. This program provides assistance to those homeowners with early detection in their home.

Performance improvements


This program increases the number of homes in the City that are in compliance with Ontario Fire Code requirements.
