Fire Prevention Week is October 8-14, 2017 and the theme is, "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!

Smoke and fire spread fast. There's no time to figure out how to escape AFTER a fire starts. That's why it is so important that everyone has working smoke alarms in their home and that they practice a home fire escape plan with everyone in their household BEFORE there's a fire. 

Residents are encouraged to develop and practice a home fire escape plan. Visit our Home Escape Plan or Smoke Alarm web pages for information on fire safety tips and resources. 

The Port Hope Fire & Emergency Services Department is hosting Open Houses across the municipality at all three fire stations located in Port Hope, Welcome and Garden Hill on October 10, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in support of Fire Prevention Week and this year's campaign.  Each fire station will have activities, fire safety information, free food and drinks, 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 Garden Hill station.

 For more information contact the Municipality of Port Hope Fire & Emergency Services Department, 5325 County Road 10, Port Hope, 905.753.2230
