No Alarms - No Chance

No Alarms – No Chance

County of Brant - The County of Brant Fire Department has responded to two structure fires this week where there were no working smoke alarms.  Of the 11 reported residential structure fires since January 1, 2017, four of those residences had no working smoke alarms, an insufficient number of smoke alarms or smoke alarms that were not maintained and replaced within the manufacturer’s specifications. 

“Without the required number of working smoke alarms, occupants of a home will have little chance of escaping a fire” said Fire Chief, Michael Seth.  “It is the law to have working smoke alarms on every storey and outside sleeping areas, as well as, working CO alarms outside sleeping areas. This is the way we protect our family from fires.”

Working smoke alarms and CO alarms provide the early warning we need to escape fire and carbon monoxide.

Michael Seth added, “The engineered lightweight construction of today’s homes makes homes burn hotter and faster, smoke is more toxic and the escape time is more precious than ever.  You may have as little as two minutes to escape.”

Penalties for not having working smoke and CO alarms can be $360 up to $50,000 per alarm, one year imprisonment for individuals or $100,000 for corporations.  The County of Brant Fire Department actively enforces the provisions of the Ontario Fire Code in order to protect the citizens of our municipality.

If you have any questions regarding meeting the requirements of the code, please contact the Fire Prevention Division of the County of Brant Fire Department at 519-442-4500.
