Sun Peaks Fire Rescue volunteers and staff recently conducted a door to door smoke alarm initiative. The results are shocking: 39% of all residents visited required at least one fire alarm replacement, 50% of all residents visited required some level of corrective action. With these odds, there is an unreasonable risk to Sun Peaks properties and there is a very real risk of unnecessary loss of life. Losing a loved one is devastating and heart breaking, losing your home is more than stressful; yet far too many people appear to be delaying or failing to check their alarms annually.
Our fire rescue volunteers are willing to help. If you call 250 578 8985, they are prepared to make an appointment to visit your resident to assist you in verifying that all fire alarms are working. Please make an appointment with the department so that we may reduce any unnecessary risks. Thank you and remember to thank our volunteers for their service to the community.
