Smoke alarms increase your chance of surviving a fire in your home while carbon monoxide alarms will make you aware of the presence of the dangerous gas. According to the Ontario Fire Code, you must have a working smoke and carbon monoxide alarm outside all sleeping areas of the home. In addition smoke alarms are also required on every storey of the home.   

If you own your home and are a senior, have a physical disability or are running your household on a low income, firefighters will come to your home and either replace your batteries or fully install the correct number of smoke and/or carbon monoxide alarms for your home, free of charge.

This program is only available to eligible homeowners. If you live in a rental unit (house or apartment), your landlord is responsible for installing and maintaining your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
