Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services Receives In-Kind Donation Through Project Zero

Sep 10, 2018

Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services (MFES) has partnered with the Ontario Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council and Enbridge Gas Distribution (Enbridge) on Project Zero. This project helps improve fire safety in homes, while helping to lower fire and carbon monoxide-related deaths. The overall goal of the program is to help reduce fire and carbon monoxide-related deaths to zero.

Through Project Zero, MFES is receiving a donation of more than 760 Kidde Canada 10-year, worry-free combination alarms, valued at $45,712. As an annual public education campaign, Project Zero provides select fire departments with combination carbon monoxide/smoke alarms to be distributed in support of reaching high-risk residents in their communities.

MFES will distribute the alarms as part of their Fire Safe Older Adults campaign running from September 12 to November 30. Older adults will have the option to participate in a free in-home fire safety assessment conducted by MFES.

The official presentation from Enbridge and the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council to MFES will take place at Mississauga Celebration Square on Wednesday, September 12.
