Toronto fire chief behind grill for launch of Fire Prevention Week
City of Toronto Fire Services Chief Jim Sales will get behind the grill to dish out free barbecued hotdogs along with kitchen safety tips at the launch of Fire Prevention Week in Toronto.

Date: Saturday, October 5
Time: 11 a.m.
Location: Toronto Fire and EMS Training Centre, 895 Eastern Ave.

During this year's Fire Prevention Week, October 6 to 12, Toronto Fire Services will be spreading the word that more fires start in the kitchen than in any other part of the home. Fire Services will teach people how to prevent cooking fires from starting in the first place.

Fire Services will hold a number of events to promote fire and life safety. The educational, interactive events will focus on the dangers of cooking-related fires, the reason why smoke alarms are the law, and the importance of practising a home fire-escape plan.

A complete schedule of Fire Prevention Week events in Toronto is available at
