Fire Prevention Week 2020 teaches you to cook with care

Toronto Community Housing takes tenant safety very seriously. Our fire safety program includes a strong focus on tenant education about fire prevention, particularly preventing or avoiding fires in their homes. 

During Fire Prevention Week, which runs from October 4 to 10, we’re focusing on how to cook with care. Our campaign will educate tenants on careless cooking, which is one of the top causes of home fires in TCHC communities. Fire prevention is especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic, when so many of us are at home and cooking on our own. To respect all public safety guidelines and physical distancing needs, our campaign will be going digital: handy cooking safety tips will be posted to our Facebook and Twitter feeds each day.

By following these tips, tenants can prevent cooking fires and keep themselves and their families safe.
