Quotes

“Pickering Fire Services is proud to partner with all Fire Services in Durham Region on this important public safety campaign this holiday season. Protecting our community is a shared priority, and I urge our communities to be mindful of how quickly festivities can turn to tragedy when the distractions of the holidays are upon us. It is critical that our residents understand and act upon the importance of having working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms, and are aware of the main causes of fire in the home. We encourage the public to tune in to social media and ask any fire-related questions. Through education, awareness, and teamwork, it is my hope that fire-related fatalities, injuries, and property damage can be reduced throughout the City this holiday season.”

– Pickering Fire Chief, John Hagg
