Project Zero Protects Against Carbon Monoxide

Caledon | by Jill Young  

A public awareness campaign "Project Zero" is distributing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to prevent deaths.

Caledon Fire and Emergency Services with the help of Enbridge is putting a stop to the risks surrounding carbon monoxide.

Through Project Zero, 198 combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms were given to Caledon Fire Service.

This year Enbridge Gas invested $275-thousand dollars into the project and public education campaign.

Ontario Fire Marshal and Chief of Emergency Management Jon Pegg says the objective of Project Zero is to deliver combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to Ontario communities who need them the most.

When properly installed and maintained, combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms help provide the early warning to safely escape from a house fire or carbon monoxide exposure which is known as the "silent killer".
