Enhancing Fire Safety Education and Prevention in Your Community

TVOKids and the OFMEM want all families to

"Push 2 Buttons!"

Dear Fire Chief, Public Educator/Fire Prevention Officer:

TVOKids and the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM) are partnering again this fall to help raise awareness about the importance of early detection and warning. Ontario families are being asked to test both the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms in their homes to make sure they are working.

The TVOKids “Push 2 Buttons” is a fun opportunity that helps to raise awareness about the importance of early detection and warning. This year’s fall campaign begins on October 10th and ends on October 23rd. During the campaign, kids are encouraged to go to tvokids.com and enter the number of alarms they have tested. The number will be added to the TVOKids “Push 2 Buttons!” counter. Kids will also be able to print a special certificate.

TVOKids has created a poster (attached) to help promote the campaign.  Fire departments are encouraged to distribute it as widely as possible in your community: send it to local media, hang the poster throughout your community, or drop it off at local schools and ask that it be displayed during the campaign. Consider asking school principals to make an announcement over the school PA system during morning and afternoon announcements. The campaign can also be promoted by providing a link to the TVOKids website from fire department websites.

Encourage everyone in your community to “Push 2 Buttons!” and test the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms in their homes. Kids at home will love the permission to test the alarms to see if they are working. Adults, whether homeowners or renters, will have peace of mind knowing that they and their families have early warning when they hear the sound.

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.
