Notice- Clearview Fire Project Zero

CLEARVIEW– Clearview Fire & Emergency Services is pleased to announce that the department has received 144 Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms through the Project Zero campaign which is supported by Enbridge Gas Distribution and the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council.

The alarms will be distributed to seniors and families with young children throughout the Township. To receive an alarm, residents should contact Stephanie Ward at 705-428-6230 ext. 401 or by email at sward@clearview.ca.

“This is an excellent opportunity to work with our safety partners and enhance our smoke alarm and carbon monoxide program. Early detection is key and this program will be a valuable initiative to achieve this,” said Colin Shewell, Fire Chief Clearview Fire & Emergency Services. 

About Project Zero

The Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council, partner Enbridge Gas Distribution, and Ontario municipal fire departments are working together to provide combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to Ontario residents through the Project Zero campaign.

The objective of this unique campaign is to provide these alarms to fire departments for delivery to high-risk areas and individuals so that if deadly carbon monoxide or smoke is detected, residents will have the early warning they need to safely escape. The campaign also promotes awareness about the importance of properly maintaining fuel-fired appliances and installing and/or replacing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

Since the launch of the campaign in 2009, Enbridge has contributed over $700,000 to Project Zero, resulting in the distribution of more than 24,300 alarms in 80 Ontario communities where Enbridge operates.
