Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarms

Carbon Monoxide Alarms

Fire Department Logo

The Kapuskasing Fire Department would like to remind you that carbon monoxide alarms are mandatory in all residential homes. They are required near all sleeping areas and in the service rooms, and adjacent sleeping areas in multi-residential units. Carbon monoxide alarms can be hardwired, battery-operated or plugged into the wall.

Smoke Alarms

The Ontario Fire Code requires every home to have a working smoke alarm on every level of your home and near each sleeping area. Because smoke rises, it is recommended to install them on the ceiling. You should also test them regularly to make sure that they work properly.
