Programs

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

Alarms for Life

Alarms 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.

The Arson Prevention Program for Children (TAPP-C)

TAPP-C is an assessment and intervention program for children between the ages of 2 and 17 to reduce the rate of youth setting fires in our community. We offer this service upon request by the Ontario Provincial Police or care providers for children who are overly curious about fire.

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.
