Kamloops Fire Rescue Continues Kamloops Homesafe Program

Release date: 
November 19, 2019

Kamloops Fire Rescue (KFR) is continuing its work with the Kamloops Homesafe Program—a fire and life safety initiative aimed at keeping our community safe.

Throughout November and December, KFR suppression staff will perform over 600 public safety visits to residences in various city neighbourhoods. The purpose of these visits is to educate residents on the importance of working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and to offer tips to prevent fires in the home. Crews will assist residents with testing their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and will provide information on fire and life safety.

Homesafe is an important and innovative program that provides valuable safety information directly to the community. This is a great opportunity for KFR’s public safety professionals to work directly with the community they serve and promote fire and life safety through education and awareness.

Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms save lives, and it is KFR’s goal to ensure there is a working alarm in every home in Kamloops.
