Many of these fires occur in areas called the urban interface zone where homes, cottages and subdivisions are built into the forest landscape. Protecting your home from wildfire starts with simple actions. Whether you are doing regular yard maintenance or making large scale changes during renovations or landscaping, you can make choices that will help protect your home from wildfire. 

Visit Fire Safe Canada to find the information and resources you need to become FireSmart.

Smoke AlarmsSmoke Alarms:

  • Homeowners: it is the responsibility or homeowners to install and maintain smoke alarms on every storey of their home and outside sleeping areas. This applies to all houses, including seasonal residents such as a cabin or cottage, and mobile trailers used as a dwelling unit.
  • Landlords: it is the responsibility of landlords to ensure their rental properties comply with the law.
  • Tenants: It is against the law for tenants to remove the batteries or tamper with the alarm in any way.

StopNuisance Alarms: Smoke alarms are intended to get your attention when there is a fire, and can't do this without power. Do not take the battery out or disconnect the power if you experience nuisance alarms. There are alternatives that can help you solve the problem for good.

Working smoke alarms will alert you to a fire in your home, but to safety escape everyone must know what to do when the alarm sounds. In a fire every second counts, so it's critical that you have a fire escape plan in place. Prepare your escape plan now.

Carbon Monoxide Safety

Carbon Monoxide is a tasteless, colourless and odourless poisonous gas often referred to as "the silent killer". It is produced when fuels such as natural gas, oil, wood, propane and kerosene don't get enough air to burn up completely. Damaged or blocked venting as well as inadequate air flow can allow carbon monoxide to build up inside a home, a cottage camper or tent. [MORE]
