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.
Buildings maintained in accordance with the provisions of the Fire Code perform well during fire incidents.
While building owners are responsible for carrying out the provisions of the Fire Code, fire services have a public safety interest in ensuring that buildings are maintained in accordance with the Fire Code.
Inspections of properties should be done, or arranged for, by the Township when:
