Welcome to the Municipality of Tweed!
Fire Prevention Week is October 5 - 11, 2014. This year’s theme is Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!
Ontario law requires that working smoke alarms be located on every storey of the home and outside all sleeping areas.
Your safety is your responsibility. Only working smoke alarms save lives. In fact, smoke alarms can increase your chances of surviving a fire by up to 50%!
Make sure you:
- Test smoke alarms monthly.
- Change the batteries once a year.
- Replace smoke alarms after 10 years.
- Develop and practice a home fire escape plan with everyone in your household.
