Home Safe Home –Caledon’s Door-to-Door Safety Awareness Campaign

Caledon Fire and Emergency Services is expanding the Home Safe Home door-to-door program to the entire Caledon community. Don’t be alarmed if fire crews pull up to your house and approach your door; there isn’t a fire, but rather, firefighters spreading the word on how to ensure one never develops.

“The Town of Caledon supports the principle of ‘prevention rather than response’ — taking a proactive approach to fire safety and prevention,” says Fire Chief Dave Forfar.  “Education is a key component of fire safety and over the next several months, our firefighters will be delivering the message of being proactive rather than reactive.”

Beginning August 1, 2014 and running through to October 31, 2014, Caledon firefighters will be visiting neighbourhoods throughout Caledon. Visits will be on weekdays from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on weekends from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Through the Home Safe Home campaign, residents have the opportunity to ask firefighters questions, request fire safety information and will be reminded of fire safety legislation, such as having working smoke alarms on every level.

During the campaign, firefighters will be handing out the 2014 Home Fire Safety Guide; a three part brochure on prevention, detection and escape. The brochure includes a fire prevention checklist, to help residents eliminate fire hazards in their home, as well as information on smoke alarms and how to create a home escape plan.
