Working smoke alarms save lives. In the wake of Toronto's terrible fire tragedy this week, homeowners are reminded to:

1) install one smoke alarm per floor and outside sleeping areas

2) never remove a smoke alarm from the ceiling due to a nuisance alarm

3) install fresh batteries in all smoke and CO alarms at least annually

4) replace smoke alarms older than 10 years old, and

5) practice a home fire Escape Plan together with the family

Free Fire Escape Planning Guides and safety tips are available for download at www.safeathome.ca
