During the Fire Prevention Week launch this week at the Ontario Fire Marshal’s office in Toronto, Fire Marshal Ross Nichols had a special message for residents, urging them to take personal responsibility for their safety in their homes.

“The Ontario Fire Service is doing everything we can to keep people safe from fire, but we can’t do it alone,” said Nichols, pictured above with NFPA’s Canadian Public Education Representative Laura King. “Ontario residents need to make fire safety a priority in their own homes. Fire safety truly does begin with you.”

He also encouraged the public to have working smoke alarms and develop and practice a home escape plan.
