Brampton Fire wants to ensure resident homes are “Alarmed for Life”

Members of Brampton Fire and Emergency Services may be knocking on your door this

summer.  “Alarmed for Life” is a summer awareness initiative that has fire fighters randomly visit homes across the city to ensure smoke alarms are in working order.

It’s been estimated that close to 70 per cent of homes do not have smoke alarms that either work properly or are appropriately located throughout the house.

“Our goal is to educate residents,” says Platoon Chief Peter Gatto. “In many cases, residents  have smoke alarms but the batteries are old, the alarm is past its 10-year due date, or it is not  located where it is supposed to be.” The initiative is not punitive, and if firefighters come across any of these scenarios, they will  replace and correctly install the smoke alarms. Over the past several years, fire services across the GTA and Ontario have undertaken  “Alarmed for Life” campaigns to educate the public. The Brampton campaign runs until September.
