Fire Prevention Education

All year round CHS works to raise awareness of fire safety and prevention, during fire prevention week we educate the community, government and businesses about the importance of fire safety and visual smoke alarms for people who are culturally Deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing. Fire Prevention Week is the second full week of October. The theme for the 2016 Fire Prevention Week, held Oct. 9-15, is “Don't wait -- Check the date! Replace smoke alarms every 10 years."  CHS staff participate in public education events across the province in schools, hospitals and malls in partnership with local fire departments during the week.

CHS continued advocacy efforts to educate municipalities, governments, fire departments and the public on the importance of visual smoke alarms.

Sightline to Safety

CHS has partnered with local fire departments across the province for a program called "Sightline to Safety." This program ensures people who are culturally Deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing receive adequate and appropriate education about preventing, detecting and escaping a fire in the home.
