In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between escaping safely from a fire or having a life end in tragedy. That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan. Join us at one of the various events that Markham Fire & Emergency Services will be hosting throughout Fire Prevention Week and learn fire safety.
