Ottawa Fire Services Making House Calls June 1st to 8th

by Steve | Comments Off

Ottawa-Fire-LogoThroughout the first week of June, Ottawa Fire Services will be out in the community encouraging residents to install, test and ensure that the smoke alarms in their homes are operating correctly. The Ottawa Fire Code requires homes to have a working smoke alarm on each floor as well as at least one carbon monoxide monitor per residence. Visits will take place from 6-8 p.m. on weekdays and between 2-4 p.m. on weekends. Residents are not obliged to provide access to their homes; it is strictly a courtesy call. They will provide important information for those who need new or additional alarms and will have batteries with them. This program has been running since 2005.
