Did you know? Home fires kill eight Canadians a week. While these fires represent 40 per cent of all types of fires, they are responsible for 73 per cent of fire deaths. Most of these deaths are preventable by taking precautions.
Smoke alarms are required in each residential dwelling unit as follows: at least one outside the bedroom(s) and at least one on each level of your home – including split levels (2015 Ontario Fire Code, Division B Section 2.13).
