Do you know your fire safety?
Milton Fire Chief Dave Pratt, recently spoke to myFM about fire safety and how to keep yourself and you loved ones safe.
The recent epidemic of forest fires in Northern Ontario, is making fire safety a growing concern for many Canadians.
Chief Pratt says major fires are often preventable.
Pratt says that there are a variety of programs run by the department that are dedicated to educating the public on fire safety.
He says it’s up to residents to make sure they help prevent fires, as by the time the Fire Department gets involved it can often be too late.
Pratt says that educating the public is the most important way to prevent fires and promote safety.
