"Push the Button" Campaign 

BRANTFORD, ON – February 18, 2015 – The Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM) and TVOKids are teaming up once again to raise awareness about the importance of early detection by asking Ontario families to test their smoke alarms.

From February 23 until March 8 families will be able to enter the number of smoke alarms they have tested on the TVOKids website. After you have entered your smoke alarms a certificate is available to print.

For some added fun, TVOKids.com has a great online and interactive fire safety game for children 11 and under. Hot Spot or Not encourages players to identify fire safety hazards in a house or apartment, room by room.
