Ontario’s New CO Alarm Law – The Hawkins-Gignac Act Carbon Monoxide (CO) is known as ‘The Silent Killer’ because you can’t see it, taste it or smell it. The only way to detect the presence of the deadly gas is to install a carbon monoxide alarm. On October 15, 2014, the Ontario Government formally enacted a new law - The Hawkins-Gignac Act - making carbon monoxide alarms mandatory in all Ontario homes at risk of CO. This revision to the Ontario Fire Code, supersedes any existing municipal by-laws.
Now, no matter the age of your home, if you have any oil, propane or gas-burning appliances, furnace or water heater, a wood or gas fireplace, or an attached garage or carport, you must have working carbon monoxide alarms installed near sleeping areas. Ontario’s new CO alarm law brings a consistent level of protection to all Ontarians.
Neebing Emergency Services, along with other Northwestern Ontario Fire Departments, donated used fire gear to Firefighters Without Borders Canada, who will send the gear to Peru.
Big Thank you to Bison Transport for moving the gear from Neebing to Vancouver and to all the volunteers for their hard work
