Project HomeSafe :: Keep Your Home Safe From Fires
The Vancouver Fire Department and Fire Marshal's Office are conducting a targeted home fire safety campaign within the city called Project HomeSafe.
The goal of the campaign is to inform residents about the top three causes of preventable home fires in Vancouver, and educate them about the steps they can take to avoid them.
This summer, Fire Department staff and Fire Corps volunteers will be going door-to-door in several neighborhoods to help spread the Project HomeSafe message in multiple languages.
Read the Project HomeSafe brochure below and check out the home fire safety tips linked at the bottom of this page, and help protect your home and family from preventable fires!
Fire Prevention Information for ResidentsWhen people are hurt or killed in a fire it is usually at home. Fires at home are usually the result of a lack of knowledge. We encourage you to print the Home Self-inspection Checklist and use it a couple of times per year. It's a great family activity that is both educational and potentially life saving.
