Lowe's, Rona and First Alert Fire Prevention Community Events

The Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC) is pleased to announce that we are once again continuing our partnership with First Alert Canada and Lowe’s Home Improvement stores to promote fire prevention and fire safety throughout communities in Ontario.  We are also proud to announce that we have added a new partnership, with participating RONA stores, to our fire prevention and fire safety best practices partnership program. 
 
Through the leadership of local fire departments, a series of fire prevention and public education events will be held in October and November at participating Lowe’s and RONA stores across Ontario. Our goal is to show people how simple, yet important, fire prevention can be. Plus, October is Fire Prevention Month in Ontario.
 
Stop by participating Lowe’s or RONA stores for live fire truck demonstrations, information sessions on smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, fire escape planning tips and tricks, and contest giveaways, including Will Fightfire and Friends products and activity materials.
 

But that’s not all!

 
This year the OAFC is hosting a new contest on emergency escape planning.  The contest will comprise of two fire escape planning maps, one in a premade home, and one for the child to draw their own home with escape route. The contest will be run throughout fire prevention month, with all entries being submitted back to the OAFC office by November 22, 2019. The child with the winning entry (which will be drawn) will receive a special prize package that includes: a fire safety gift pack, a $500 cash prize, and a customized offer from the local fire department – which could include a fire station tour, a ride in a fire truck, and/or being a fire chief for a day. The contest runs from October 1, 2019 until November 22, 2019.
