After the Fire Program

After the Fire imageStarted in 2014, the After the Fire program builds on the Home Safety Program with personnel performing safety checks and free smoke alarm installations, but also targeting neighbourhoods that have recently seen a fire. Residents often have questions about a nearby incident, and are looking for direction on how to safety-proof their homes and prevent similar property damage or tragedy. Emergency Services staff will share safety tips and important information about the leading causes of fires and how to prevent them.
