A Message from Darryl Bailey, Acting Fire Chief:
I am so honoured to be the Acting Fire Chief of the Town of Caledon Fire & Emergency Services. Caledon has nine fire stations and more than 290 dedicated, professional and volunteer personnel proudly working hard to provide our residents with effective, efficient and prompt fire protection services, including:
Fire Code inspections are conducted by staff for all building types and premises to ensure that the Fire Code is complied with so that buildings are fire safe for the occupants.
Our many public education programs for community groups, schools, seniors, and at community events provide information and teach fire safety to children and adults. I encourage you to look for our displays.
We will work with you to ensure your home is fire safe. Due to the increased use of plastic materials in furniture and home building products, fire has become more dangerous. In a fire, these materials emit extremely high heat and very toxic gases. You may have just seconds to safely escape a fire in your home. That's why early detection of fire is absolutely vital. Only working smoke alarms provide those precious seconds you and your family need to safely escape. It's the law in Ontario to have working smoke alarms on every storey of your home and outside all sleeping areas.
Develop a home fire escape plan and know what to do when the smoke alarm sounds. Sit down with everyone in your household and discuss how each person will get out of the home in a fire.
Practice your escape plan with everyone in your home. Make sure everyone can get out quickly.
If your home contains a fuel burning appliance, fireplace or an attached garage, a CO (Carbon Monoxide) alarm is required to be installed adjacent to each sleeping area in the house.
For optimum protection, it is recommended that additional CO alarms be installed in other levels and/or areas of the home that are in proximity to a CO source, subject to the distance limits provided in the product's instruction manual.
In order for smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to do their job, they need to have working batteries. Once a year, old batteries should be replaced with new batteries. When you change your clocks, take the time to install new batteries in all alarms.
We're here to help. Please reach out to us anytime at 905.584.2272 or firstname.lastname@example.org
