Smoke Alarm Program

The East Ferris Fire Department performs door-to-door inspections to ensure that all homes have working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors, and to educate the public on the maintenance of these devices and home fire safety. Provincial law states that every home in Ontario must have a working smoke alarm on every storey and outside all sleeping areas as well as a carbon monoxide detector.  There is zero tolerance for non-compliance. Failure to comply with the Fire Code smoke alarm and carbon monixide detector requirements could result in a ticket or a fine for individuals and/or corporations.
