The 2024 Smoke and CO Alarm Program is here!

Every year EG Fire and Emergency Services (FES) conducts the annual Smoke and CO alarm program, which runs from April to October. This program is free and available to all EG residents.

How to be entered

FES staff go door-to-door visiting different areas in EG, checking all smoke and CO alarms to ensure they are in good working condition. If you choose to participate in the program and have working alarms, you will be entered into a monthly draw for your chance to win a $100 gift card to a local restaurant in EG. 

Don't want to wait for FES to visit?

Book an in-person or virtual inspection by email or call 905-853-8842.

What it involves

Whether you have scheduled your own personal inspection, or your address was selected through our Smoke and CO Program database, during the inspection FES staff will:

  • Test all smoke alarms and CO alarms to make sure they are in good working condition and are installed in the proper locations of your home.
  • Check all expiry dates to ensure your alarms have not reached their end of life.
  • Answer any other fire related questions you have.
