The Ontario Fire Code states that, “Every home in Ontario must have working smoke alarms on every storey and outside all sleeping areas.”

Am I also required to have a CO Alarm?

The new laws around CO alarms state that if your home has a fuel burning appliance, fireplace or attached garage you are required to have a working CO alarm outside your sleeping areas. it is recommended for best protection of you and your family that additional alarms be installed around the home and in proximity to potential CO emitting devices.

Statistics show that properly installed and functioning Smoke & Carbon Monoxide alarms save lives!

Get yourself protected today! 

Alarms are available for purchase at the Municipal Office.  Please see the attached POSTER for pricing.
