KAWARTHA LAKES - Kawartha Lakes fire­fight­ers could be com­ing to your door to check for work­ing smoke alarms as part of their an­nual door-to-door cam­paign.

The cam­paign runs from June un­til the end of Septem­ber. Fire­fight­ers will be go­ing door to door on Tues­day, Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day evenings from 6:30 p.m. un­til dusk, in Lind­say.

In Bob­cay­geon and Omemee ar­eas, the hours will be from 1 to 3 p.m. and pos­si­bly evenings and week­ends. The cam­paign will be run for the months of July and Au­gust in other par­tic­i­pat­ing ar­eas in the City of Kawartha Lakes evenings and week­ends

Fire of­fi­cials re­minded res­i­dents and sea­sonal vis­i­tors that smoke alarms are a must in your home or cot­tage. Fires can move so fast that even if a fire started in an­other room while you are home and awake, with­out a work­ing smoke alarm you may not have enough time to get to safety.

Smoke alarms are re­quired by law on ev­ery level of your home and out­side of all sleep­ing ar­eas; fail­ure to com­ply could re­sult in a $ 235 ticket per of­fence.
