Fire Prevention Week – Free Community Open Houses

Can you ‘Hear the Beep Where you Sleep?’ During National Fire Prevention Week, October 4 to 10, Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services (MFES) wants to remind you that this sound can save your life.

During Fire Prevention Week, MFES will be in the community and opening fire stations throughout the city to help educate residents on the importance of fire prevention and safety.

According to MFES, most fires in Mississauga occur in residential homes, so having an escape plan, knowing the sound of your alarms and having both fire and carbon monoxide detectors in place can save lives.As part of Mayor Crombie’s city-wide food drive challenge, MFES is encouraging the community to bring a food bank item to the fire station open houses, details below. COBS Bread will provide a coupon for a complimentary loaf of bread in exchange for a food bank donation. This offer is first come, first served.
