Are Your Loved Ones Safe From Fire?

Seniors and people with disabilities are most vulnerable when it comes to fire.

If you are considering a care, long-term care or retirement home in Ontario for yourself, a relative, or a friend, there are some important questions to ask the operators of these facilities.  The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management has developed a fire safety card to help you when choosing a facility.
