• alarmDoes your home have working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors? 
  • Does your family have a fire safety plan? 
  • Need some help???

Unlike commercial properties, most residences are not required to have regular fire inspections. Many homeowners are unaware of hazards that may exist in their own homes. 

The Campbell River Fire Department has started the Home Fire Safety Program, which is designed to educate residents about fire safety and is provided free of charge to residents of Campbell River.

Upon request, the fire department will attend your residence and if you do not have a working smoke alarm, one will be provided free of charge.  Also upon request, the fire department will inspect your home for fire safety based on the attached checklist.

Fire Safety Plans

Every home needs one - Do you know yours?

Once there is a fire in the home it is too late to develop an escape plan.  Take the time now to make a plan, and ensure everyone in your family what to do in case of emergency.

Let's get started!

  • Make sure that there are smoke detectors on every level of your home and outside all sleeping areas.
  • Draw a floor-plan of your home and identify two ways out of each room.
  • Identify a meeting place outside of the home where everyone knows to go in the event of an emergency.
  • Practice your fire escape plan regularly.

Escape Plan

Remember that in the event of a real fire, time is of the essence! Do not stop to gather pets or valuables and NEVER go back inside a burning building for any reason.

The Campbell River Fire Department provides fire safety, education and assistance to the community.

Give your family and friends a gift that saves lives…a smoke alarm. Most fatal fires take place at night, while you and your family are asleep - when seconds can make the difference between life and death. If you have one or more working smoke alarms in your home you increase your chances of surviving a fire. Smoke alarms are inexpensive and easy to install.


Practice fire safety in the kitchen this holiday season. That's just one of the messages to remember. Never leave cooking food unattended and if you are faced with a grease fire, remember - put a lid on it and turn the heat source off! Always turn pot handles to the back of the stove so pots won't be pulled or knocked off.
