Safety & Fire Prevention
More fires begin in the kitchen than any other room in the home. In fact, residential cooking is one of the leading causes of fire-related deaths.
By using working smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms and by having a home fire escape plan, The Township of Huron-Kinloss Fire Services wants to help keep residents safe from death or injury.
If you have questions contact the Fire Chief of the Local Fire Department in your response area of the Township or the Township of Huron-Kinloss Administration Office.

Fire Safety for Children
Learn Not to Burn® is a comprehensive fire safety curriculum for use in schools. Developed by the National Fire Protection Association, NFPA has created this program to reach preschoolers through grade 2 students. It presents fire safety messages using classroom lessons, activities and home connections. It provides you with maximum flexibility so that it can be taught as a stand-alone fire safety unit or easily integrated into language arts lessons. Throughout the program, you can invite the local fire department into the classroom to support the lessons.
