Time to Care - Fire Alarm and Carbon Dioxide Detector Safety
According to the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs, too many Canadians are
at heightened risk, unnecessarily, of dying due to a fire or carbon monoxide
exposures in the home.
As part of our commitment to employee wellness, we are pleased to support
the CAFC's efforts to create change.
The Workplace Wellness program would like to remind employees to change your
smoke alarm batteries once every year, and to replace all smoke alarms that are
older than 10 years and all carbon monoxide alarms that are older than 7
Why should you take 'Time to Care'? Household fires and CO
poisonings result in hundreds of deaths and hospitalizations each year. Many of
these tragedies involve children, and most are preventable.
Need more motivation? Statistics indicate that as many as half of your
friends, relatives, and co-workers may live in homes with smoke alarms with no
batteries or smoke/CO alarms that have expired.
Please take the 'Time to Care'; help give your family and friends
the precious time they may need someday to escape a fire or carbon monoxide
poisoning. For more information visit
