Home Safe Home Campaign 2017

 Home Safe Home

Caledon Fire and Emergency Services is preparing for the "Home Safe Home" door-to-door program again this year to focus on home fire safety.  Don't be alarmed if you see fire crews pull up to your house and a firefighter approach your door!  Chances are there isn't an emergency, but rather, firefighters spreading the word on how to ensure you never have one. 

"The Town of Caledon supports the principle of 'prevention rather than cure' -- taking a proactive approach to fire and life safety," said Fire Chief Darryl Bailey.  "We believe education is a key component of home safety and over the next several months, Caledon firefighters will be delivering the message of being proactive rather than reactive."

Beginning May 15, 2017 and running through to October 15, 2017 Caledon firefighters will be visiting homes throughout Caledon on weekdays from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on weekends from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

Through the Home Safe Home public education campaign, residents will have the opportunity to ask firefighters questions.  The focus of the safety campaign this year will be to educate home owners on the importance of maintaining heating and cooling equipment as well as having working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms throughout the home.

Fire Prevention Week

Fire Prevention Week (FPW) is an important time for us to all keep in mind very important fire prevention and safety tips and lessons.

FPW was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire back in 1871, and each year fire departments across North America promote fire safety in their communities. The theme for this year's FWP is "Every Second Counts", and will aim to educate residents and visitors to Caledon the importance of developing a home fire escape plan with all members of the household and practicing it twice a year.

Here are some resources for you and your family to help keep fire prevention top of mind.
