Smoke alarms and CO alarms save lives.
It is the law in Ontario to have working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms in your house and cottage.
Find out what you need to do to Beat the Silent Killer.
Oakville Fire Chief Lee Grant explains the requirements for all homeowners in the Fire Marshals' Public Fire Safety Council YouTube video Ontario's New CO Alarm Law: A Call to Action for Homeowners.
Smoke alarms do wear out. If you think your alarms are more than 10 years old, replace them with new ones.
- the low battery warning beeps, replace the battery immediately.
- Dust can clog a smoke alarm. Carefully vacuum the inside of a battery powered unit using the soft bristle brush.
- If electrically connected, shut off the power and vacuum the outside vents only. Restore power and test the unit when finished.
- NEVER remove the battery for use in other devices.
Working smoke alarms save lives: test yours every month.
It's the easiest test you will ever take. Check out this video put together by the Burlington Fire Department.
