Replace Your Old Smoke Alarm for a Chance WIN!

Change/Check smoke alarm batteryDid you know? Over 100 people die in fires in Ontario every year! The majority of fatalities occur in homes, and in many cases, evidence suggests that a working smoke alarm was not present.

It’s Smoke Alarm Month in Markham and Markham Fire & Emergency Services is challenging you to check and make sure you have a working smoke alarm on each floor of your residence and outside all sleeping areas when you turn your clocks forward for Daylight Savings.

Keep yourself and your loved ones safe! Check the expiry date of your smoke alarms, press the test button and change the battery, if required.

Tip: Expired smoke alarms can appear to be yellow, rather than the original white colour.
