According to Fire Prevention Canada, “Statistics show that, on average, fire kills eight people each week
in Canada, with residential fires accounting for 73%  of these fatalities.”

The theme for this year’s Fire Prevention Week is “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every bedroom needs a working smoke alarm!” According to the NFPA: “The key message of this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 4-10, is to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. Larger homes may need more alarms.”
