Fire Prevention Week is coming up: October 9 – 15, 2022

The theme for this year is “Fire Won’t Wait – Plan Your Escape!”

This year’s theme involves challenging all Ontarians to Plan a Record-Breaking Escape!

Mattawa Fire Department encourages all local residents to create and practice a home fire escape plan.

Mattawa Fire Department works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe from home fires.

Homes today burn faster than ever meaning that occupants have as little as two minutes (or even less) to escape a home fire from the time they hear a smoke alarm. Occupants’ ability to escape a fire depend largely on smoke alarms and advance planning.
