Thickwood neighborhoods of Elmore, Hillcrest, and Cedarwoods identified for assessments, free replacement alarms

The Municipality is launching the Home Fire Safety Program this month and is reminding all residents to check their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

“Working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms save lives and help to prevent serious injuries,” said Fire Marshal Nick Brenner. “Please check your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms regularly and be aware of potential fire risks in your home.”

Free home assessments and alarms offered

As part of the program, residences in the Elmore, Hillcrest, and Cedarwoods neighborhoods in Thickwood are eligible for a free fire safety home assessment. All assessments are conducted by Regional Emergency Services (RES) personnel. If existing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are found to be outdated or not working, replacements will be provided.

Fire Prevention teams will be knocking on doors in those neighborhoods to offer assessments throughout the spring and summer. If preferred, an online checklist assessment is also an option. Review the online checklist and find more information on the program at rmwb.ca/HFSP.

Twelve years of home fire safety

Since 2012, RES has been offering the Home Fire Safety program, with support from the Enbridge Pipelines Fueling Futures Grant. During this time, RES has inspected more than 1,500 homes and provided more than 1,700 smoke and carbon monoxide alarms throughout the Municipality.

Anyone with questions about the Home Fire Safety Program is encouraged to contact Pulse online or call 780-743-7000.
