Toronto Fire Services is launching Fire Safety Awareness Week on Monday June 8. The campaign will see Fire Services working in cooperation with Toronto Community Housing, educating Torontonians on how to survive a highrise fire. Roughly half of the residents in Toronto live in multi-storey buildings including rental units and condos.
The blitz comes following a tragic weekend in Brampton. Early Sunday morning a fire broke out in a townhouse complex taking the life of a 10 year old boy and leaving up to 100 homeless. Eighteen families, many of whom did not have insurance, are in shock from the disaster. The full story can be read here.
