Test it Tuesday - Are there heroes in your home?

Port Colborne Fire & Emergency Services will be heading to homes in Port Colborne on Tuesday, May 29, for ‘Test it Tuesday’. In an effort to ensure each home in Niagara 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 Scott Lawson, Fire Prevention Officer, Port Colborne Fire & Emergency Services.

Fire Fighters will be visiting neighbourhoods across Port Colborne on Tuesday, 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’.

Starting in June 2018, until late fall, Port Colborne Fire & Emergency Services will also be rolling out a new campaign to all households in Port Colborne. Residents are encouraged to keep an eye out in their mailboxes for smoke alarm cards that outline the details, all as part of Port Colborne Fire’s goal of a 100% compliance rate in the City.
