• Fire Prevention Cortes • Check Your Smoke Alarm • Are Your Chimneys Cleaned

CIFFA reminds you to check the batteries in your smoke alarms. The sad reality is that on average, fire kills eight Canadians every week. Residential property fires account for 40% of all fires and a staggering 73% of all fire deaths. Most of these deaths are caused by human carelessness and so are completely avoidable. Keep your family safe , check your smoke alarm battery regularly.

The best prevention of a chimney fire is to have your chimney cleaned annually and to burn dry firewood.
