En­bridge Gas Dis­tri­bu­tion, the Fire Mar­shal’s Pu­blic Fire Safety Coun­cil and the Alfred and Plantagenet Fire De­part­ment are part­ne­ring up to im­prove home safety. The goal is to bring fire and car­bon mo­noxide-re­la­ted deaths down to zero.

This part­ner­ship is hap­pe­ning through Project Zero – a pu­blic edu­ca­tion cam­pai­gn that is pro­vi­ding more than 6,600 alarms to re­si­dents in 30 On­ta­rio mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ties. The Alfred and Plantagenet Fire De­part­ment re­cei­ved 120 com­bi­na­tion smoke and car­bon mo­noxide alarms through the cam­pai­gn and this year.

Since 2009, 34,384 alarms have been pro­vi­ded to On­ta­rio fire de­part­ments as part main­tai­ned, com­bi­na­tion smoke and car­bon mo­noxide alarms help pro­vide the ear­ly war­ning that is nee­ded to sa­fe­ly es­cape from a house fire or car­bon mo­noxide ex­po­sure.

Car­bon mo­noxide is a toxic, odour­less gas that is a by-pro­duct of in­com­plete com­bus­tion of ma­ny types of com­mon fuels. It is im­por­tant that all fuel-bur­ning equip­ment be pro­per­ly main­tai­ned to prevent car­bon mo­noxide buil­dup. Car­bon mo­noxide alarms are re­com­men­ded as a se­cond line of de­fense to pro­tect against the dan­gers of car­bon mo­noxide poi­so­ning.

This part­ner­ship was an­noun­ced du­ring the Ju­ly 3 Alfred-Plantagenet Mu­ni­ci­pal Coun­cil mee­ting, where re­pre­sen­ta­tives from Pu­blic Fire Safety Coun­cil and the Alfred and Plantagenet Fire De­part­ment were present.

“The alarms made pos­sible through Project Zero will be de­ployed in the most di­sad­van­ta­ged areas of the Mu­ni­ci­pa­li­ty,” said Do­mi­nic Cô­té, Alfred and Plantagenet - figh­ter. “A fire in den­ser po­pu­la­ted areas can have a ma­jor im­pact on ad­ja­cent buil­dings and put more ci­ti­zens at risk.”
