Fire Safety Friday – Candle Fire Safety

The Hamilton Fire Department (HFD) has developed a series of “Fire Safety Friday” messages for students and caregivers, as part of its Elementary School Fire Safety Education Program Initiative.

This week’s message, Candle Fire Safety, highlights the importance of never leaving a burning candle unattended. Keep burning candles away from children and pets.

Caregivers, do you know that most candle fires start when things that can burn are too close to the candle? See the attached pdf information sheet for helpful tips on how to prevent a candle fire.

The fire safety message and affiliated content is derived from the Hamilton Fire Department, Office of the Ontario Fire Marshal, and the National Fire Prevention Association.
