The Hamilton Fire Department is an integral part of the community. Participation in public events allows HFD to interact and educate the public on fire safety measures but also the many services provided to citizens.
Story behind the numbers
Hamilton Fire Department personnel attend community events and schedule pro-active sessions with the public in an effort to educate residents on fire safety matters. This helps citizens understand what behaviours contribute to fires and what actions are necessary in order to prevent fires from occurring.
The Fire Protection and Prevention Act require that the Hamilton Fire Department provide public education programs to citizens. Improved knowledge of fire safety matters can lead to a change in behaviours and a reduction in the number of responses and more specifically, structure fires, associated property loss/ injuries and deaths.

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 During this conversion, the data on the Citizen Dashboard will not be updated quarterly, resulting in some data being out of date.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.
