Fire Prevention Week

This year for Fire Prevention Week (October 3-9), we focus on learning about the sounds of fire safety.

  • A continuous set of three loud beeps (beep, beep, beep) means smoke or fire. Get out, call 9-1-1, and stay out.
  • A single chirp every 30 or 60 seconds means either the battery is low and must be changed or the alarm has reached its end of life and must be replaced.
  • All smoke alarms must be replaced after 10 years.
  • Chirping that continues after the battery has been replaced means the alarm must be replaced.
  • Make sure your smoke and CO alarms meet the needs of all your family members, including those with sensory or physical disabilities.

A message from Chief Darryl Bailey

I am so honoured to be the Fire Chief of the Town of Caledon Fire and Emergency Services. Our more than 290 dedicated, professional and volunteer personnel proudly work hard to provide our residents with effective, efficient and prompt fire protection services, including:

Emergency Preparedness

Emergencies can happen at any time and without warning. Be ready. With a little preparation, you can respond quickly to help yourself and others. Understand the risks in your area, create a household emergency plan and build an emergency kit. Learn more.


We inspect buildings to ensure they meet the Fire Code so that buildings are safe for their occupants.

Public education

Our many public education programs for community groups, schools, seniors and community events provide information and teach fire safety to children and adults. I encourage you to look for our displays.

Home safety

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.

Escape plans

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 the case of a fire. Practice your escape plan with everyone in your home so that they can get out quickly.

Smoke alarms

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.

Carbon monoxide alarms

If your home contains a fuel burning appliance, fireplace or an attached garage, a Carbon Monoxide (CO) 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.

Replace your batteries

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. 

Kind regards,

Darryl Bailey

Chief, Caledon Fire & Emergency Services
