Port Colborne Fire & Emergency Services will be heading to homes in Port Colborne on Tuesday, May 14, for ‘Test it Tuesday’. In an effort to ensure every Port Colborne home has working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, residents are encouraged to PORTicipate by testing their alarms.   

“In Port Colborne we have experienced firsthand the tragedy of fire, and have been working diligently to ensure every home in Port Colborne has working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms,” said Charles Turpin, Fire Prevention Officer, Port Colborne Fire & Emergency Services. “We are always working towards 100% compliance across the city”.

Fire Fighters will be visiting neighbourhoods across Port Colborne on Tuesday, May 14, assisting residents with alarm testing and installing working alarms if the homes do not comply. These efforts are extending across the Niagara Region as the 11 other municipalities of the Niagara Chapter of Ontario Municipal Fire Prevention Officers Association will also be participating in ‘Test it Tuesday’.
