Pickering hoping to educate residents on fire safety with ‘Get Real Pickering’ campaign

Pickering Fire Services will be going door-to-door once again for the ‘Get Real Pickering’ fire education campaign.

The five-week campaign will begin on May 13 and focus on educating residents about fire safety and fire-related issues in the community.

Select Pickering households will receive an information card in the mail, followed by a visit from Pickering firefighters who will be available to discuss the reality of fire in the community, and answer fire-related questions.

“The safety and well-being of those in our community remains our top priority,” said Fire Chief John Hagg. “This campaign gives our residents and firefighters a chance to engage and have a meaningful discussion around the importance of working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, escape planning, fire safety and prevention.”

Chief Hagg hopes that through education, awareness, and teamwork, fire-related fatalities, injuries, and property damage can be reduced throughout the City.

Members of the public are also encouraged to connect with Pickering Fire Services at LetsTalkPickering.ca/PickeringFire to learn more about fire safety, ask staff fire-related questions and more.
