Toronto Fire Services today joined First Alert Canada to donate 300 smoke alarms to organizations that help support Toronto communities. First Alert Canada is an important partner whose ongoing commitment and effort helps to ensure that all residents of Toronto have the required smoke alarms needed to stay safe.

The donation was shared between ABRIGO Centre, Davenport Perth Neighbourhood & Community Health Centre and West Neighbourhood House, with the goal of ensuring these vital communities have working smoke alarms and have access to important fire safety information and other necessary resources.

First Alert Canada’s contribution comes during Toronto Fire Services’ annual Fire Prevention Week. Running from October 4 to 10, Fire Prevention Week educates people about the simple, but important things they can do to keep themselves and those around them safe from fire in their kitchens and homes. This important week also reinforces the need to have working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms along with home escape planning.

Toronto is home to more than 2.9 million people whose diversity and experiences make this great city Canada’s leading economic engine and one of the world’s most diverse and livable cities. As the fourth largest city in North America, Toronto is a global leader in technology, finance, film, music, culture and innovation, and consistently places at the top of international rankings due to investments championed by its government, residents and businesses.
