Fire Prevention



Did you know that 72% of fires in Ontario occur in homes?

Furthermore, did you know that the majority of these fires are caused by cooking activities, with electrical, heating, smoking, and appliances as additional causes?

Most home fires are easily preventable if you narrow your focus and take personal steps to increase our safety. One way to do this is by proactively going through each room in your home to find signs of danger and fix them.

The Pelham Fire Department encourages residents and their families to put their safety first at all times; have working smoke alarms on every level, carbon monoxide detectors outside sleeping areas, and eliminate fire hazards.
