Ottawa Fire Services launch Wake Up! Get a working smoke alarm Spring campaign
News Posted by ottawastart on May 04, 2007
Ottawa Fire Services would like to inform residents that their Spring Wake
Up! Get a working smoke alarm door-to-door awareness campaign is underway.
Firefighters will be knocking on doors throughout the city to remind residents about
the value and legal responsibility of having a working smoke alarm. If requested,
they will check smoke alarms to make sure they work properly and may provide new
batteries, install a smoke alarm or provide residents with a manufacturer coupon for
the purchase of an additional smoke alarm.
Since the Wake Up! Get a working smoke alarm campaign began in Fall 2005, Ottawa
Fire Services have knocked on approximately 30,000 doors. Of the homes that were
reached, more than 30 per cent did not have a working smoke alarm. That number
dropped to 25 per cent in 2006.
The Spring 2007 campaign will run from May 5 to June 23.
