“Push the Button!” Campaign

TVOKids and the Office of the Fire Marshal (OFM) have teamed up to raise awareness about the importance of working smoke alarms by asking Ontario families to test their smoke alarms.

“It’s the law to have working smoke alarms on every level of your home or cottage,” said Fire Prevention Inspector Ron Woolfrey. “Smoke alarms should be tested regularly to ensure they are working properly.”

Kawartha Lakes Fire Rescue is encouraging everyone in the community to “Push the Button!” and test the smoke alarms in their homes. Kids at home will love the permission to “Push the Button!” to hear if the alarms are working.

Once they’ve tested their smoke alarms, kids are encouraged to go to www.tvokids.com and enter into TVOKids interactive smoke alarm the number of alarms they have tested. The number will be added to TVOKids “Push the Button!” counter.

The campaign begins on October 22 and ends on November 4, 2012.
