Fire Prevention Week is October 9 - 15, 2022

Pickering Fire Services is partnering with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week from October 9 - 15, 2022.

This year's Fire Prevention Week theme is, “Fire won't wait. Plan your escape.," and aims to educate residents on the important actions they can take to help keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires.

Today's homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes, or less, to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Your ability to get out of a home during a fire depends on early warning from smokes alarms and advance planning.

It's important to be prepared, should you experience a fire in your home. We encourage you to create and practice a home fire escape plan so you and your loved ones know what to do as soon as your smoke alarm sounds.

Fire won't wait. Plan your escape.

Pickering Fire Services takes great pride in ensuring the safety of our community. The Fire Prevention Section is overseen by the Deputy Chief, Administration and provides direction to the Chief Fire Prevention Officer, Fire Prevention Officer, and Fire Inspectors.

Our goal is to educate residents on the probability of fires happening, common causes of fire in our community and empower them to take action to protect their family from fire. Informing the public on prevention measures is a critical component in keeping our residents and their property safe from fire.

Every October, we participate in the Office of the Fire Marshal's Fire Prevention Week Events. Each year, hundreds of people come out to the events where they can speak with Fire Prevention staff about fire safety at various locations throughout the City.
