Apartment Fire Safety Community Outreach Program
This community outreach program is geared to residents living in Burlington's apartment/condo buildings. The focus of this targeted outreach strategy is to educate residents about how to prevent the most common causes of building fires (unattended cooking and careless smoking) and create awareness of the importance of personal escape planning.
Created by the Office of the Fire Marshal of Ontario and the Centre for Addition and Mental Health with a goal of reducing the risk of fire-setting among children and youth in the community. This program targets children/youth at risk of setting fires and makes education and counseling resources available to them. The program is delivered locally through partnerships with the Halton District School Board, Halton Regional Police Service, Children's Aid Society, The Reach Out Centre for Kids and other regional fire departments.
Public Safety Education Presentations
Firefighters and/or Fire Prevention staff are available to deliver fire safety talks to enhance curriculum-based learning objectives.
