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.

Student Fire Prevention

Every year too many young people experience fire emergencies in college residences and off-campus housing.  Smoking material, cooking, candles and electrical short circuits are common causes of these fires.  Educating post-secondary students about fire safety and prevention helps reduce the loss of life and property.  This presentation is based on fire safety tips for students form the Office of The Fire Commissioner of BC.
