Media Advisory - Survive the holidays

    TORONTO, Nov. 30 /CNW/ -

    What:        The holiday season typically is one of the deadliest times
                 of the year for home fires. In the first two weeks of
                 November alone, eight people died in fires across Ontario.

                 The fire service in Ontario is extremely concerned that this
                 holiday season could be the deadliest one yet. The Office of
                 the Fire Marshal and Toronto Fire Services will conduct fire
                 safety demonstrations to provide people with fire safety
                 tips to survive the holidays.

    Who:         Pat Burke, Ontario Fire Marshal
                 Bill Stewart, Fire Chief, Toronto Fire Services
