12 Days of Holiday Fire & CO Safety

Thorold Fire and Emergency Services has partnered with the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council and Country 89 on the upcoming 12 Days of Fire & Carbon Monoxide (CO) Safety campaign.

For the twelve days leading up to Christmas, in alignment with the Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal, a daily holiday safety message will be read on air. Listeners will have the opportunity to win a prize by calling in and repeating the holiday safety message.

Holiday Safety Tips:

  • Always stay in the kitchen when something is cooking on the stove
  • Place lit candles away from anything that can burn and out of reach of children and pets
  • Drink responsibly. Attempting to cook or smoke while under the influence of alcohol is often a contributing factor in fatal fires
  • Make sure the base of real Christmas trees are immersed in water at all times to prevent them from getting too dry
  • Check all sets of decorative lights before putting them up and discard any sets that are damaged
  • Develop and practice a home fire escape plan so that everyone in your home knows what to do if the smoke or CO alarms sound
