Home safety program
The Calgary Fire Department is committed to ensuring safe communities. The Calgary Fire Department Home Safety Program works to achieve this by sharing fire prevention strategies and home safety information with Calgary residents. Each year Calgary Firefighters visit Calgary homes to communicate important, life-saving information.
The three elements of the Calgary Fire Department Home Safety Program are:
Home Escape Plan
You should develop a Home Escape Plan with your family so that everyone knows what to if there is ever a fire in your home. Please see all the elements you'll need to complete your home escape plan.
Smoke alarms, when properly installed, tested and maintained, provide the best early warning system in the event of a house fire. Detection and warning of smoke and fire saves lives and reduces damage to homes and personal belongings.
Carbon monoxide detectors
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas that has no colour, smell or taste.
CO alarms provide the only warning of dangerous CO gases in your home.
