 Check out some of the educational programs we offer and select the one that fits your fire safety education needs.

Alarmed for Life

Alarmed for Life focuses on smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. We provide, locate, install and maintain smoke and CO alarms and ensure residents are complying with the laws. Firefighters go door to door and offer a friendly alarm check. We also deliver this program after responding to a fire emergency.

Sightline to Safety

Sightline to Safety helps people who are deaf or hard of hearing prepare for an emergency. This includes getting devices to assist with early warning and escape. We developed this program with the Canadian Hearing Society to improve confidence and reduce anxiety towards fire.
