Public Education is part of the core services that the Hamilton Fire Department provides for citizens. The HFD is focused on engaging with residents through public events and the Department’s Home Fire Safety Education Program.
Story behind the numbers
Following a particularly tragic year in 2016, the Hamilton Fire Department launched the Home Fire Safety Education program as part of their commitment to address how the HFD could better educate residents on home fire safety.
This is a new pro-active initiative as of May 2017. Hamilton firefighters are going door to door and talking to residents about home fire safety and checking smoke alarms in an effort to achieve a higher compliance rate of operational smoke alarms in homes across the City.

DATA NOTE: The Citizen Dashboard is in the process of being converted into an Open Data format, linking the Citizen Dashboard with Open Hamilton. During this conversion, the data on the Citizen Dashboard will not be updated quarterly, resulting in some data being out of date. The conversion is underway and is expected to be fully completed by June 2019.
