This year's Fire Prevention Week campaign, "Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere," works to educate people about three basic but essential steps to take to reduce the likelihood of having a fire and how to escape safely in the event of one:


Look for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.


Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.


Learn two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.

Don't miss the Port Hope Fire and Emergency Services Open House  

Port Hope Fire and Emergency Services is hosting Open Houses across the municipality at the three fire stations located in Port Hope, Welcome and Garden Hill on October 9, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in support of Fire Prevention Week and this year's campaign.  Colour in the Sparky and Simon sheet and return it to one of the fire stations on October 9th for a chance to win a surprise!  Each fire station will have activities, fire safety information and most of all, FUN. Come by and bring the family to one or more of the fire stations.  This year the Inflatable Fire Safety House will be located at the Port Hope station located at 245 Ontario Street.
