Due to COVID-19 our members won't be out knocking on doors as part of Ottawa Fire Services' "Wake Up! Get a Working Smoke Alarm" program (June 7 - 14). So, we want to remind Ottawa residents that a WORKING smoke alarm is required on every story of your home and outside all sleeping areas.
If you have a fuel-burning appliance, a fireplace, or an attached garage, a WORKING carbon monoxide detector is also required adjacent to each sleeping area of your home.
