Milton Fire Department Fire Prevention Week and Open House

It’s Fire Prevention Week from October 8 to 14 and the Milton Fire Department wants you to Plan 2 Ways Out of your home. If a fire broke out tonight while you were sleeping, would you and your loved ones be able to get out safely? Take a few minutes to plan your escape from fire and practise it with everyone in your household. Make sure everyone knows two ways out of each room, if possible. Arrange a meeting place away from the home where everyone can meet and call the fire department from outside the home.

The Fire Department is also inviting you to attend their open house on Saturday, October 14, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to wrap up Fire Prevention Week. The open house features a free barbecue and hands-on, kid-friendly activities at Fire Station 1 (405 Steeles Avenue East), Fire Station 2 (2665 Reid Side Road, Campbellville) and Fire Station 3 (610 Savoline Blvd.).
