FIRE PREVENTION WEEK - OCTOBER 3 - 9, 2021 

LEARN THE SOUNDS OF FIRE SAFETY 

The 2021 Fire Prevention Week focuses on the different sounds and alerts that safety devices make when there is a fire or carbon monoxide hazard. Knowing the unique noises the alarm makes – a beeping sound or a chirping sound – means it is time to take action!

Elementary students across the Province from Kindergarten to Grade 4 are encouraged to submit a contest entry form to the Office of the Fire Commissioner for a chance to win a Grand Prize of a $200 Lego gift card and their classmates and teachers receivie a collection of fun, fire prevention material.  Winners are randomly selected students, one from each grade level.
