The Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council, in partnership with the Toronto Fire Service, is launching the “12 Days of Holiday Safety” next week. The campaign kicks off at Scarborough Town Centre in Toronto. One hundred one fire inspectors and public educators from Toronto are scheduled to attend and will pick up gift bags, which include Sparky the Fire Dog® dolls, Sparky ornaments, and smoke alarms designed to remain effective for up to 10 years.

Forty-three other local fire departments are participating as well. Fire departments will work with their local media to announce a fire safety tip every day for 12 days leading up to Christmas. Listeners can phone in at a designated time. The first ones with the correct message of the day will win one of the gift bags. The campaign is expected to provide outreach to hundreds of thousands of Ontario residents.

The safety tips include watering Christmas trees daily, making sure to have working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms, escape planning, candle safety, heating precautions, and electrical, and smoking safety.
