Homesafe Program

Home Safe Program - Smoke Alarm Installation

Statistics have shown that the presence of a working smoke alarm in a residential fire greatly reduces the risk of death. 

Smoke alarms need to be replaced every 10 years to ensure reliability and tested monthly.

Two-thirds of houses that catch fire don't have functioning smoke alarms. 

Smoke alarms should be installed in each level of the house and outside sleeping areas. 

Your likelihood of surviving a fire increases by 74% with a functioning smoke alarm.

Vulnerable people in our City have an elevated risk.

 The intention of the Homesafe program is to install smoke alarms and reduce the number of fire deaths.
