Fire Services: Project Zero
Toronto Fire Services will launch a new fire and life safety program designed to help protect people from residential fire deaths, with the goal of reducing Toronto’s fire death rate to zero. This program is called Project Zero.

Date: Monday, March 9
Time: 1 p.m.
Location: Toronto Fire and EMS Training Centre, 895 Eastern Ave. (parking on site)

Many people are still dying in preventable residential fires. Project Zero will help protect Toronto homes and families that do not have working smoke alarms installed.

Toronto Fire Chief Bill Stewart, along with Janet Holder, President of Enbridge Gas Distribution, and Pat Burke, Ontario Fire Marshal, invite the media to attend the launch of this new program -- the first of its kind in Toronto.
