Keeping our Community Safe – Caledon Fire and Emergency Services launches Home Safe Home program

May 15, 2023 (CALEDON, ON) – Caledon Fire’s Home Safe Home door-to-door program is running from May to October again this year to promote having working smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. Caledon firefighters will be visiting homes throughout Caledon on weekdays and on weekends.

Don’t be alarmed if you see Fire crews pull up to your house and a firefighter approaching your door starting this month. Chances are there isn’t an emergency, but rather firefighters spreading the word on ensuring you never have one.

In 2022, Ontario had 133 fatalities of which over 50 per cent of those residential fires did not have working smoke alarms in them, and 65 per cent of residential deaths were caused by CO poisoning, where a working CO alarm was not present.

“We believe education is a key component of home safety and over the next several months, the Town of Caledon firefighters will be delivering the message of being proactive rather than reactive,” said Fire Chief Dave Forfar. “Working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms give you the time you need to escape an emergency.”

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 homeowners on the importance of kitchen and cooking safety as well as working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
